US occupational therapy examined in research report

Research And Markets : 02 September, 2013  (New Product)
Occupational Therapists in the US report forecasts sustained demand for therapeutic services in the country for the next five years due to the aging population
US occupational therapy examined in research report


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Occupational Therapists in the US" report to their offering.



Over the past five years, Medicare and Medicaid administrators and private insurance providers have turned to occupational therapy as a low-cost alternative to traditional medical care. Occupational therapy can provide early detection for health problems, thereby lowering long-term healthcare costs. In the five years to 2018, the aging population will provide sustained demand for industry services; however, industry operators are expected to continue facing further pressure on profitability from continued malpractice suites and reimbursement caps. Despite pressures on profit, strong demand will provide an incentive for more firms to enter this industry.



This industry includes independent health practitioners who help individuals with physical, mental or developmental conditions with daily living and working through everyday activities (occupations). More specifically, occupational therapy includes: helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations; helping individuals recovering from injury to regain skills; and providing support for individuals experiencing physical and cognitive changes.



This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five-year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
