Olinda, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/13/2014 -- Occupational therapy (OT) is a science that’s often misunderstood by those who could derive the greatest benefit from treatment. Kate Rae, Head Occupational Therapist and owner of Strive Occupational Therapy, is committed to educating patients while providing them with techniques and services to ease pain, increase mobility and help them maintain an independent lifestyle.
The practice offers a full complement of occupational therapy services and works with other healthcare providers through referrals. Rae combines manual manipulation with modern techniques and in-home care. Patients receive a holistic approach to health and wellness that addresses the needs of the entire body.
OT is available for individuals 16 years and over. Services are effective in treating conditions that include orthopaedic injuries, musculoskeletal dysfunction, neurological impairment, chronic pain and mobility problems afflicting seniors. OT is used to ease pain, increase flexibility and mobility, and facilitate the healing process.
Depending upon the needs of the client, Strive Occupational Therapy offers in-home rehabilitation services, equipment prescriptions and home modification assessments, along with work station set-up, education and training. The OT experts at the practice help patients maximize their safety and retain their independence.
Patients who are able to remain in their homes are happier and healthier, but individuals who may need assistance are often reluctant to seek aid. Strive Occupational Therapy helps clients adapt their environment to their specific needs to prevent injuries, while treating each individual with the respect to which they’re entitled.
Rae and her team are cognizant of the difficulties those with injuries, pain and chronic disease face every day. The practice provides services to alleviate pain, recuperate quickly and manage a host of chronic diseases.
