Subject: Occupational Therapist help .....

I was referred by the Rheumie nurse to the OT because my wirst was hurting. Really great because she has given me a high toilet seat [ good for the back and knees ] and a shower board [ don't have to stand in the shower now !!]. She's also gave me a wrist splint and finger splints. But the best thing I've got is a resting splint. It's absolutely fab. It keeps my wrist and fingers in a comfy position and I can even sleep with it on. I would recommend anyone who is struggling with their joint/s pain to ask to be referred to one. Oh and she has changed my walking stick from an ordinary type to a 'FISCHER ' type one and the handle is fantastic it just moulds to your hand - not like the ordinary ones !! Just thought I would share this .........
