Arthritis can be so debilitating to our clients because it is often not always the direct (or only!) reason we are seeing them. Occupational therapy practitioners have a unique perspective to not only treat the diagnosis, but we get to look at our patients holistically and address the things that are important to them, even in an outpatient setting.
Guest Hoang Tran OT/L, CHT talks pain, when to (or not to) splint, joint protection techniques and what do we do about those “junky” shoulders.
Resources from the Show:
