Melissa Hansen, BA, MScOT, OT Reg (BC), discusses how an occupational therapist can help patients recovering from a concussion.

What is Occupational Therapists

Patients who have an orthopedic condition such as pelvic malalignment syndrome or are recovering from orthopedic surgery can really benefit from working with a local occupational therapist. A local occupational therapist is a health and wellness provider who helps patients adapt to daily life following an injury or simply due to aging. For example, a local occupational therapist may help someone who has suffered a stroke dress themselves. They may assist a person recovering from an orthopedic surgery for a leg length discrepancy get back to the office. A local occupational therapist may help an athlete who has suffered a stress fracture get back on the field. A local occupational therapist can help patients find the right mobility aids to assist them at home, at work and out in public. Your local occupational therapist can work with your other health care team members, including your local family physician, local physiotherapist and nutritionist. If you’d like to know more about how a local occupational therapist can help you recover from an injury or a surgery such as a laminectomy, or manage a chronic health condition, start a conversation with your local family physician, local orthopedic surgeon or pharmacist.
