Why Recreational Therapy (RT) for 
Physical (PHYS) Rehabilitation?

"Why is RT important? 

It is important because its principal objective is to improve a person’s functioning and assist them in staying as active, healthy, and independent as possible in the life pursuits they have chosen. 

What makes RT unique is the use of recreational modalities as part of an individual’s intervention strategies. This approach is individualized to each person by their interests and lifestyle. 

By incorporating a person’s interests, their family and friends, and their community, recreational therapists make the therapy process more meaningful and relevant for the people they serve."
