Occupational Therapy, also known as ergo-medicine (alternative medicine), is a fast-developing branch of medical science. Its prospects are very demanding in various branches of medical sciences like Neurology, Orthopaedics, Burn, Oncology, Paediatrics, and even in Psychological conditions like mental retardation.
