Occupational therapists Neuromuscular team

Occupational therapists (OTs) work with people of all ages who have a disability or severe injury.

About occupational therapists

They provide information on managing daily living activities and carry out assessments for equipment and housing adaptations.

They are employed by the NHS or social services – and some neuromuscular clinics have dedicated OTs. GPs, hospital doctors and neuromuscular care advisors can make referrals and it is sometimes possible to self-refer.
