People with MS are faced with numerous challenges that may affect the things they want and need to do. Often limitations impede the ability to take care of basic needs at home, at work and within the community. Simple everyday tasks can turn into daily frustration. One of the best approaches to help alleviate these challenges is through the intervention of Occupational Therapy.
I am an occupational therapist with 20 years experience and I have had MS for 12 years. It has been essential for me to incorporate my professional skills to help me as my MS has progressed over the past several years. I can validate the impact occupational therapy can make not only as a healthcare provider but also as a person who has MS.
