Arthritis and Rheumatism
What can an OT do for someone whose feet and legs are damaged by rheumatoid arthritis?
An occupational therapist can help you learn ways of protecting your hands and feet in doing activities of daily living. Also, a therapist can help you manage with performing activities of daily living if there are limitations due to joint damage.
