How does occupational therapy help people with multiple sclerosis?

Occupational therapy (OT) can help people with multiple sclerosis stay relatively active in their daily lives. By improving your skills, making recommendations, and providing training using adaptive equipment, occupational therapy might help you perform everyday, functional activities with greater ease, satisfaction, and independence. An occupational therapist can also help individuals who are having difficulty with memory, concentration, organization, or other cognitive issues.
