For people who want to lead the most independent, productive and satisfying life
Occupational Therapists work with individuals and groups to achieve optimal health and wellbeing through participation in the occupations of life.
The term ‘occupation’ is used to describe all the everyday things we do day to day, like dressing, self-care, cooking and shopping but also the things we do to be who we are, like creating a meaningful life and engaging with our wider society and culture. Our occupational therapists used evidence-based interventions to help you overcome challenges that affect how you live.
Getting back to life through adaptation or compensation:
If you feel limited by what you can do at work or home, contact Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy to talk to one of our Occupational Therapists. If routine daily tasks like dressing, bathing or cooking are getting harder, help is available.
Our Occupational Therapists work with adults that because of illness or injury, need assistance in learning skills to help them lead independent, productive, and satisfying lives. We can prescribe, if necessary, devices and therapy equipment to help you do the activities you want and need to do. This includes modifying your office or home to help make your daily tasks easier. You’ll get a total solution and not just a product.
Are you having falls or worried about them?
Falls are a major health issue in the community with around 1/3 of adults over 65 experiencing at least one fall per year. This is set to increase as Australia’s population ages. Occupational therapists are experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to looking at a home and working with you to modify the home (or the way you get around it) to keep you safe and independent.
