Arthritis and Rheumatism
I have joint damage in my feet from RA and OA. My doctor is sending me to occupational theripist. What can an OT do to help my feet?
An occupational therapist can help you learn ways of protecting your hands and feet in doing activities of daily living. Also, a therapist can help you manage with performing activities of daily living if there are limitations due to joint damage.
