Frequently Asked Questions

Occupational therapy (OT) and physiotherapy are both allied healthcare services that help people improve their ability to perform daily activities, recover from injuries, and maintain or enhance their overall physical health and function.

A few key features that differ between the two include:

Occupational Therapy (OT): Occupational therapists help individuals develop, recover, or maintain the skills needed for daily living and working. Their primary focus is on enabling people to participate in meaningful lifestyle and professional activities that are important to them, such as self-care, work, or past-times. This can mean helping clients learn new ways to perform daily tasks, modifying their environments or equipment, developing strategies to compensate for injuries or impairments, or promoting healthy habits and routines.

Physiotherapy (Physio): Physiotherapists focus on diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal, neurological, and cardiorespiratory challenges. Their primary goal is to restore or improve an individual’s movement and function, reduce pain, and prevent future injuries through manual therapy, exercise, therapeutics (like heat, cold, or electrical stimulation), and patient education.

Occupational therapy can help patients return to or learn new ways to enjoy life at home, in the workplace, and doing the activities that they love. Whether you’re returning to the workplace post-injury, have recently recovered from a challenging illness, or would like to learn new ways to approach movement, work, and life, an OT can work with you both in clinic and at home so you can get back to safely doing the things you love.
At some clinics, yes. Evexia Therapies team of allied health professionals, including our occupational therapists, can work with Australia’s Medicare scheme, the NDIS, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, and some workplace covers to ensure you can get the support you need.

Our experienced OTs rely on a number of different assessments to determine each individual’s abilities, needs, and challenges both in the workplace and at home.

Among some of the most common assessments used in the clinic, our team may rely on: COPM, AMPS, MOHOST  and functional musculoskeletal evaluations—all of which are industry leading practices—to better understand an individual’s level of performance, function, and overall wellness.
