A Thorough Occupational Health Assessment
Our qualified and dedicated OTs at our Perth clinic can provide thorough occupational health assessments to evaluate your condition and provide you with a plan to promote healing and optimise wellbeing.
Under the guidance of your occupational therapist, you will receive personalised stretching and strengthening programs to suit your needs. This, combined with your clinical treatment, will help restore optimal movement patterns. Your OT will explore your lifestyle factors such as workplace set up and sleeping positions in order to identify and manage aggravating factors.
Ergonomic Assessments with an Experienced OT in Perth
As well as providing you with a thorough occupational health assessment during your appointment, we can also provide you with an ergonomic assessment to better understand some of the contributing factors in your day-to-day work life, such as posture, which may be affecting an area of your body. Once your ergonomic assessment has been completed, we’ll then create a treatment plan which will help promote your general wellbeing and ongoing healing.
