From what I understand, the main difference between a 'physical therapist' and an 'occupational therapist’ is that the 'occupational therapist' works with people in overcoming physical barriers in the work place. Whereas, the 'physical therapist' works in the broad sense of the entire being of the person. The distinction between the two therapists is an important division that must be made prior to the first visit.If you need more information check out here
