470168 tn?1237471245 I have a query regarding provision of Occupational Therapy in the USA. I want to compare it with provision in the UK. In the UK provision is divided between Health and Education. Education do not have any Occupational Therapist Department as they say "it is not essential to learning". As any mother with an autistic child with sensory differences knows sensory stuff has a huge impact and does make it hard for them to access learning in a school environment.
1672915 tn?1335220598 My case was pretty extreme but I did Occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy daily. Occupational therapy was very helpful for me, but I was learning how to live in a wheelchair. I did do a lot of work on my arms and my shoulders and it was helpful very quickly.
Avatar f tn Pain management focuses on "management" of pain rather than "cure" of pain. That's a very important distinction that usually gets lost when a patient is first referred to a pain practice. I can pretty much guarantee that every last person on this forum who sees a pain management physician still deals with pain every day. The goal is to reduce pain to a manageable level so the patient can regain some functionality and rejoin the land of the living.
Avatar n tn You might benefit from seeing a pain management specialist, who will try different methods your regular doctor doesn't know about or have time to explore with you. Also, ask for a referral to an Occupational Therapist who will give you exercises to strengthen the muscles supporting the damaged structures, and help you figure out safer, more ergonomic ways to perform your job duties. Good luck!

Avatar n tn Just an idea, have you ever thought of occupational therapy? My son has sensory integration disorder and we do occupational therapy once a week. Sensory is very similar to adhd in that they both affect the nervous system and can look a lot alike. Medication does not work for sensory though and occupational therapy is the way it is treated. They work through play on things that have direct impact on the nervous system and then they work on behavioral issues and life skills.
Avatar m tn Since it has already been 4 months since the stroke and improvement has not been significant, major improvement would not be expected beyond this stage. Management at this stage would largely involve physical and occupational therapy. It would suggest discussing the situation, the appropriate management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with his treating neurologist. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn I am a occupational therapy practioner and was a vision therapist for almost 6 years. I would love to discuss your situation with you more and answer any questions that I can. There is a lot of mixed information out there and it can be confusing and overwhelming at the same time. I am a strong beleiver in the effects of vision therapy interventions on the pediatric population and with sensory integration so please do not hesitate to contact me.
Avatar f tn The child can get lots of help with Occupational Therapy and by people at home, and if he has the capacity, he can learn to help himself later on. If this is the case, a good book is called "The Out of Sync Child"- ask the therapist about it.

Avatar f tn Management in such cases may involve occupational therapy/ physiotherapy, use of orthotic devices, functional electric stimulation etc. You may like to discuss the feasible options with your treating orthopedician. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn Anxiety is not the same as being anxious. Anxiety is a mental health issue that affects one's physical, emotional and mental state. Anxiety is usually an inherited trait and not one caused by life experiences. If anxiety is the issue, the root of his behaviour is embedded in his genetic make-up and asking quesitons will not solve this anymore than asking questions of a person suffering from bi-polar.
478387 tn?1210762308 Depending on the symptoms, rehabilitation includes speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. The recovery time differs from person to person. Certain therapies, such as repositioning and range-of-motion exercises, are intended to prevent complications related to stroke, like infections and bed sores. People should stay active within their physical limitations. Medicine may be needed to control high blood pressure.
Avatar m tn Management would include therapy like occupational, use of casts or braces, which can help, guide the spine to straight alignment. You might need spinal fusion and instrumentation if severe and not relieved by conservative measures. Wishing you all the best with treatment.
Avatar m tn Fatigue management is becoming a growing area of interest and research in Australia mainly due to the mining boom. As it becomes more a topic of interest this can only benefit other workers such police, nurses and other shift workers. That's why I started my blog: so we could share experiences. Would be great to hear from anyone on how they manage their fatigue from varying shifts.
Avatar m tn My son chewed clothes and saw an occupational therapist. He did have anxiety but also sensory integration disorder symptoms which is what your teacher is suggesting to you. It was a teacher in preschool that brought these things to my attention. Bless her for doing so. At first, I wasn't thrilled and resisted it but her direction of seeking occupational therapy made so much difference for how things went for my son, it's amazing!!
Avatar m tn His teacher told me today. He has been to occupational therapy which has helped a lot, except with the emotional side. He refuses to answer when asked a question. He has friends at school and they play nicely together. He also has a 4 year old brother who he fights with alot, or will tease him by taking a toy away. Or he is demanding and will tell his brother that he can't do this or that or eat this or that, etc, etc. His brother is outgoing, friendly and very active.
Avatar n tn Since the condition can not be reversed, supportive and good medical care may help prevent any problems. Physical and occupational therapy are also indicated. If she is getting progressively sicker, talk to her doctor and discuss the management plan. Working together will help treat any complication. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn My husband and I have tried our best to break this behavior in the past, now we accomadate because of the inconvience it poses for both our son and our family. I am an Occupational Therapist Assisstant and have tried varries tactile therapy. Because of the constant exposure to water his hands are the most sensitive and thus in need of lotion regularly throught the day. If you have any tips or information that would help it would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn This must be very scary as a parent to deal with. The occupational therapists that we visit for my son's sensory issues have children with selective mutism that they work with. Occupational therapy is teaching "life skills" type of stuff (besides therapy for sensory)---- they help strategize about difficult situations with a child. Anger is something they help with a lot. Stress thermometers for example are very helpful.
Avatar m tn Give Aleve (naproxen) a try. Fair warning: it's harder on the stomach than Advil so if you get an upset stomach from these kinds of medications, take it with food. Check with your doctor and pharmacist first to be sure it won't interact badly with any prescribed medications. It sounds like what you do for a living isn't allowing your surgical injuries to heal.
Avatar m tn Well, pain management isn’t just about pain medications. A pain management team consists of doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and clinical psychologists. Depending on the cause and the severity different therapies can be tried to manage pain.
Avatar f tn I've had a rough last 2 months. I had 2 exposures at work, getting blood on hand and a needlestick. This has never happened to me before. I was scared about getting blood on my hand because I did not know the HIV status of the patient. I really wasn't scared about needlestick because the patient tested negative for HIV and I was told I did not need PEP.
398059 tn?1447945633 My two days therapy involved speaking with a speech specialist , speaking with a occupational therapist, and working with a physical therapist. The speech therapist gave me tests to check on my cognitive skills. We found I had memory issues but determined they were tied to how I was feeling day to day. I saw her on Wednesday and had difficulties with some of her testing.
