For the week of October 21st– 27th, we will be celebrating OT Week 2018! OT Week is all about celebrating the work that OTs do. It highlights how they can help to improve your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. The focus of this nationwide week of celebration is helping you to “Find your pOTential”.
The final day of OT Week on the 27thOctober, also coincides with World OT Day so it’s double the cause for celebrations!
So what exactly is OT?
OTs (Occupational Therapists) are health professionals that help people overcome limitations they have in their daily activities. We look well beyond your paid “occupation” and look at all the activities that make up your daily life – think not only your work, but also your leisure, sports, hobbies, family roles and social activities. We work to make sure you can participate in all these things to your absolute full potential.
At Langer Chiropractic & Soft Tissue Therapy, our OTs work in the area of soft tissue rehabilitation. We focus on any soft tissue pain, discomfort or difficulties that you may be experiencing and help you overcome these so you can get the most out of your life.
We treat various clients from many different backgrounds and a wide range of age groups, from early childhood through to the elderly,to improve the function of their muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
A variety of hands on techniques including myofascial release, myopractic and other soft tissue techniques are used to create physiological effects including relief of pain, increased movement, reduction of inflammation and increased muscle strength and balance.
We treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, including but not limited to:
- headaches and migraines
- neck, midback and lower back conditions
- shoulder and upper limb pain
- knee, hip and ankle conditions and injuries
- jaw pain and stiffness
- arthritis and general stiffness
- postural issues
- referred pain
- acute sporting injuries
- over use injuries
- muscular strains and tightness
- joint pain and conditions
- flexibility issues
As well as using hands on techniques, our OTs look at everything your body does outside the clinic room, such as your workplace setup, how you sleep, the things around you, repetitive movements you make and how you play your sports. This allows us to focus on all the contributing factors that may be playing a role in your pain or soft tissue issue, giving a holistic breadth to your treatment.
As OTs, we align ourselves with your own health goals and work with you to help you get the best out of your body and enable you to do the things that matter the most to you.
Our Occupational Therapists are here to help you. During OT week, we will be offering a limited number of complimentary assessments with our OTs. Whether you have an injury or just want to feel better and move better, we can help.
