Mobilisation and stabilisation

Autonomy in everyday life

Joints, in particular, in the hand and shoulder are treated in occupational therapy. Occupational therapists mobilise an stabilise musculature and help coordinate and optimise everyday movement processes. The objective occupational therapy is to achieve the highest level of autonomy in everyday life, at work and in the social environment. The patient's actions should be promoted individually. He should be taught to “help himself”. Occupational therapy can be performed as part of an outpatient rehabilitation programme or on a prescription basis (public or private insurance prescription).
