Does your pain prevent you from doing activities as you would like? Whether it’s your job, your everyday activities or even your hobbies that are affected, our occupational therapist can help you regain your independence.
The objective in occupational therapy is to help you regain your autonomy and the abilities required to carry out your daily tasks, mainly using activity as a therapeutic medium. With this approach, the occupational therapist considers and can intervene both on the patient’s abilities, his/her environment and occupations.
