physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and cognitive
retraining—may help reduce these disabilities.
Physical therapy may improve your
ability to perform daily activities and make you feel better.
Occupational therapy may help you perform daily

grooming, dressing, and eating. Assistive devices may be used to help you
perform daily tasks.
