Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession. It concerns with promoting health and wellbeing through advice and performance management of daily activities.
At The Wellness Place, our occupational therapists have undertaken advanced training to assist our clients’ limitations, pain or disability through the lens of focus on their neuro-musculoskeletal system.
Utilising hands-on care and professional advice, your therapists can assist you to achieve your physical best. We recognise the important role that your muscular system plays in allowing you to perform your day-to-day activities without pain or discomfort.
Your muscular system is intricately connected to your spinal and neurological systems. It protects you and it moves you. Therefore, we recognise how important it is to ensure it is working efficiently. You can think of our occupational therapists as your muscular system experts.
It is extremely rare for you to endure an injury or experience a painful condition without the muscular system reaction. Often, your muscular system undergoes tension and spasm.
Our occupational therapists possess advanced training and experience in diagnosis and management of muscular complaints in both primary or secondary issues.
The muscular treatments delivered by occupational therapists are different to the ones delivered by massage therapists. The therapy is more focused on releasing trigger points and may often deliver immediate relief.
Our therapists focus on:
Special focus and interventions in various health conditions including:
• post-surgical care
• sporting injuries
• daily aches and pains
• Helping clients regain or enhance their daily lives after specific events such as hip replacement or stroke
• Prescribing and educating clients and carers in the use of adaptive equipment to assist function.
