Occupational therapy is given to you by a therapist who is someone who can check your posture at work and at home. Bad posture and poor work related positions can play havoc with your back and neck and, over time it can also aggravate other health problems.

The Occupational therapist can check your work related positions and posture and suggest ways to help alleviate your pain at work or your work at home.

They can also,
provide advice
look at ways an everyday task can be done differently
recommend alterations or changes to your home
refer you on to other services that can help – for example, speech and language therapy
help you to address work-related issues
Occupational therapists have specialist knowledge and can advise you on disability equipment, housing adaptations and adaptations to the workplace.
