Occupational Therapy in Lompoc

Helping Find Ease in Daily Life

Whether you’re recovering from a procedure or living with a condition that makes daily tasks more difficult, an occupational therapist can assist you in managing and modifying daily activities, so you can live more comfortably. With occupational therapy (OT), tasks are broken down into manageable parts, and patients are taught techniques for adapting activities.

The ultimate goal of occupational therapy is to enable individuals to assume an optimal level of independence, in order to sustain a higher quality of life. To learn more about occupational therapy in Lompoc and how you can get started on treatments, contact Lompoc Valley Medical Center at (805) 737-3300.

When Should I See an Occupational Therapist?

As stated by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), occupational therapists address not only the physical factors of daily well-being, but the psychological, social, and environmental factors, as well. People feel more confident when they can safely and independently engage in their hobbies and everyday activities, and OT helps promote that confidence. If your injury, illness, or rehabilitation process has been impacting your ability to go about your daily life, you may benefit from consulting with our Lompoc occupational therapists.

Some common reasons to see an occupational therapist include, but are not limited to:

Chronic conditions

  • Chronic pain
  • Arthritis
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Diabetes
  • Balance issues
  • Vision issues


  • Nerve injuries (such as carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Burns
  • Fractures
  • Joint injuries and replacements
  • Brain injuries
  • Tendinitis

Mental conditions

  • Behavioral issues (especially in pediatric OT)
  • Developmental delays (especially in pediatric OT)


  • Stroke
  • Cancer
  • Surgical procedures

Depending on your reason for seeking occupational therapy, either your surgeon or primary care physician (PCP) will refer you to a qualified and vetted occupational therapist for your treatment needs. If you believe you could benefit from occupational therapy, you should consult with your surgeon or PCP beforehand.
