Occupational Therapy (OT) is a healthcare discipline which involves assessment of challenges to daily living and helping the patient overcome these through the use of assistive devices and home modifications. OT can be part of rehabilitation following injury or serious illness, such as a stroke.
Advice & Tips:
Before the loss of dexterity and the presentation of intention tremors in my hands brought on by MS, handwritten journaling was important to me. Loss of handwriting ability has been a substantial loss for me. I have recently become aware that my occupational therapists were woefully uneducated in the practice of handwriting. The several therapists I had offered handwriting therapy advice only in the form of practice writing (using the same techniques I had always used). They didn't know enough to recognize that my technique was exceptionally flawed. Only recently, through my own internet research, have I become aware of good handwriting techniques. I can now handwrite again without substantial pain and instant fatigue. My writing is still awkward, slow, and 'sloppy,' but it is actually more legible than before MS effects.
