Anxiety management occupational therapy

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety management occupational therapy


703031 tn?1398966907 Rory had a great day and I had a stress free time! As for Lexi, she's still not connecting very well with her occupational therapist. They just aren't clicking for some reason. Otherwise, I believe her OT therapy is going well. Her DI therapy is going excellent! She's add the following words: Kelly (her therapist), your welcome, dada (she hasn't really been saying that before) and a few more that I cannot seem to recall right now. Now for the sad news...
480331 tn?1310407129 He was already in karate which does a heckofalot more stretching and posture work than soccer. Scoot has anxiety and anger management issues, so we let him quit karate about the time he went into play therapy.There are only so many problems we can deal with at a time. It's four years later: he plays soccer in the fall and baseball in the spring. He has his emotions basically under control, but the torsion is still bad.
Avatar f tn I have been talking to him, seeing a PM doc and trying do occupational therapy. I can barely stand it. It took me two months to see a hand specialist. I had to listen to a doctor tell me that I had RSD: TYPE II A (abnormal). Because I still had (have) numbness in my fingers, my palm, and the under part of my forearm. He could not explain the numbness, or why I couldnt move my fingers. He also told me that I may need to see if I have a tumor in my head or in my arm.
Avatar f tn Hi. I just wanted to say that you don't need to refer to this visit as a "doctor's appt" at all. Is it a neurologist? If not, it is a developmental doctor and they do things that won't feel like a doctor's appointment. This is so funny----------- we've been going to our occupational therapy for two years now with my son. Just LAST week when the OT says something about occupational therapy he says "This is occupational therapy?" "I thought we were just playing.
Avatar m tn Conditioning and strengthening exercises as part of a physical or occupational therapy regimen are essential and can also assist people in using walking or mobile aids. Speech therapy and communication aids may be helpful in slurred speech. You should talk to your neurologist about this. Hope this helps.

Avatar m tn You don't mention what kind of pain you have or where it is. There are a lot of different ways to try to manage pain from exercise, physical therapy, occupational therapy, gels, compounding creams, other types of medications, patches, and different procedures. It's also normal when you come off pain meds for pain to increase temporarily. After you're off them for a while, your pain will sort of reset to what your real pain level is.
Avatar n tn Your room mate is not being covered properly for his depression and anxiety and should definetly see a psychiatrist for medical management, and possibly therapy. YOu should strongly advise him to do so, and tell him that he has many choices about medication, will not be forced to take anything he does not agree to take.
Avatar f tn My son is 8. He has always been a severe introvert and riddled with anxiety. Every now and again, throughout his life, he would have these 'meltdowns', as we call them. They usually were triggered when something didn't go his way or he got in trouble for something, even just change to the normal routine. He wouldn't immediately meltdown but it would escalate to that point. It always seemed to me that he was unable to process all of the emotions?
Avatar f tn If you don't have a computer which I assume you do as you posted here, a computer can be considered assistive technology. Has she been evaluated by occupational therapy. They can help her learn how to use her environment in the most effective and energy saving way. They can teach alternate means of cooking, dressing, bathing, etc. I also don't know what state you are in, but here in KY there are programs that provide monies for attendant care or respite care.
Avatar n tn , can not handle sudden changes in plans, hates the way socks feel, can not fall asleep easily, has energy to burn - all the time , even after playing a baseball game, soccer game and karate class. I called a Pediatric physical/occupational/speech therapy clinic and talked to the social worker. She suggested an O.T. evaluation for Sensory Processing Disorder. She started O.T.
Avatar f tn ok PM me I am a certifed Occupational therapy assistant with 6 1/2 years experiance in Upper Extremity Rhab. going through all of this in the post will just get to long of a theard.
Avatar m tn i don't want to take the easy way out by saying that i have a disorder because what if i just have anger management issues? but when i think about it i dont really become angry. i feel like i pick fights for no purpose or reason and i push loved ones away often. i feel like just being by myself alot of times because i dont feel like anyone can really love me for who i am.
Avatar m tn I can't have the full treatment yet (awaiting a surgical opinion re manubriosternal instability) but I have had brilliantly transformative whole body results with just two treatments and *far better explanations* for my symptoms then I ever found in all those years of trying Medicine, Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Massage and Occupational Therapy. If a tent isn't standing up straight, you don't adjust the poles (bones), you adjust the guy wires (soft tissue).
Avatar f tn I went to occupational therapy at the recommendation of my ENT, before Chiari became more plausible. If your dr thinks that would be good for you, they can test to see what kinds of movement cause your dizziness & headaches. My OT drs were very thorough. For me it turned out that my dizziness was caused largely by eye movement. They gave me exercises that made the dizziness more tolerable. Just a thought. Glad the anxiety meds help a bit...
Avatar m tn the ECTs, the medications, the occupational therapy, etc. At the age of 19 during the first manifestations of intense depression, though, I was given lots of advice from religious to common-sensical: diet, exercise, prayer, vitamins, interesting leisure distractions/interests like horse-riding, watching TV, music, et cetera. After several months to several years, 1963 to 1968, the emotional aberrations disappeared or could be said to be sub-threshold at least for a time.
Avatar m tn Disaster psychiatry now plays a vital role in the evolving structures for preparedness and response in the fields of disaster management. Science and experience now address the tragedies of mass catastrophe with new systems. The challenges are massive for integrating mental health contributions into the practical requirements for survival, aid, emergency management and ultimately recovery.
Avatar f tn He then told me it was my tendons and I needed to go to pain management therapy. I asked him if he ever looked at my X-rays and he said no. I have had osteo arthritis in my joints for years so I was not convinced that it was my tendons causing the pain in my thumb. So yesterday I went to see a hand specialist who told me to look up the lrti surgery and he showed me my X-rays which is bone on bone with a bone spur attached.
Avatar f tn Pretty much lost use of my left arm. After much occupational and physcial therapy have regained use of the arm, but the pain is still there. In recent years, the pain became more tolerable, and then recently, it seems to be "bad" on certain days. Do I have pain everyday, yes. Is it tolerable, sometimes. I want to see what it is like without pain medicine.
Avatar f tn do it when nothing bad has recently happened. So, what kinds of therapies have you tried with your son? Occupational therapy can really be excellent. They work on behavior modification as do psychologists. Problem solving on how to handle his emotions is really critical for your son as you know. He CAN learn better ways of expressing himself. Now, I had a talk wtih a mom of a boy who is very much like your son recently. She told me one of the keys to her son was being on swim team.
Avatar f tn I have natural "permanent hypomania", some people can have it and it is classified as a form of bipolar type 2 offshoot. But it isn't in the sense that there are little to no negative connotations to it. If you need something to mediate yourself to a level of sanity then you probably have the bad kind. Which I'd seek treatment for. The only reason I've found that i have this is because i have a natural; behavioralistic tendancy towards altruism. I do it in everything.
700067 tn?1332992883 I had blue cross through dad till I was 24 than cobra till 27 and just before I lost the insurance I went to occupational therapy and kept going not knowing that the insurance stopped paying for it until I got the one month bill. It was my only pain management at the time. than I lost the insurance tried to get real insurance for me and actually didn't lie (Ironically my biggest mistake) they said I didn't qualify.
181575 tn?1250202386 I am reposting articles / summaries on the treatment management of chronic HepB. "cajim" located these articles which are quite informative. I thought about putting them on a seaprate Health Page but didn't think it was appropriate since we didn't write them. Let's make this a sort of "Unofficial Research Thread" or "URT" for this type of information. Let's keep this URT free of comments.
Avatar n tn My mother had what we believe to have been a massive hemmoraghic stroke to the left side of her brain on November 12, 2011. We think that she had the stroke during the early morning hours right before waking, and when she was finally taken to the hospital, the staff was reluctant to administer a type of medication that would only be helpful to stroke patients who received this within a few hours of the stroke.
Avatar n tn My suggestion is try to get referred to a behavioral management team, usually consisting of occupational theripists, pediatric dr, speech and language, phscology assessments, these people are professionals who deal with children who have behavioural difficulties at home as well as at school..
603015 tn?1329866573 They dont recognise bipolar in children and have said this is not the problem, they said it was anxiety causing sadness, now they have said its not typical of anxiety and agree that anxiety is just a symptom and are doing assesments and that we may not get a diagnosis. They have agreed that it is biological and not enviromental but have said little else.
Avatar m tn At the age of three my son was diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder, ADHD, Disruptive Behavior Disorder, and Encropresis as well as a Phonological disorder. We have been going through therapy through school as well as have tried medications and behavioral therapy. Last fall, he was suspended from kindergarten three times within one month and then transferred to another school where it was just him and a teacher.
Avatar n tn My son has a developmental delay called sensory integration disorder which affects his nervous system like ADHD but is treated very differently. We do occupational therapy once a week and many things at home that address his nervous system. The bottom line is that HE is a much happier boy. As you describe your husband's feelings in his youth that have carried over to adulthood, this was what I often found in my clinical practice of psychology.
Avatar f tn I actually asked for the pain psychologist, and I've also asked for an occupational therapy assessment to see if they can show me different ways of doing things without aggravating my hand. I'm hoping the pain psychologist will help me with a few things ... some nontraditional ways of dealing with the pain, like acupuncture and meditation, and also some help in getting me to ACCEPT things. I have been on a real rollercoaster and I sometimes let my family make me second-guess myself.
Avatar m tn He was diagnosed at 4 and we see an occupational therapist for this which I can't tell you how much has helped. Does he attend any type of preschool program or has he been in daycare and what do they say, first of all?? This is really important and a big key to things. Because two things are true before you start thinking of what might be 'wrong' with him. First, many boys have tons and tons of excess energy. I have two boys, one with sensory and another without.
