AUSTIN, M.N. - Much of the time, occupational therapists work to rehabilitate people who dealt with a fall or some other medical emergency.
“I took kind of a nasty fall, laid for three days and three nights without water or food. I got so dehydrated, my one shoulder was pinned behind my back,” patient Lee (OB) Smock said.
Smock now says he is feeling much better and the exercises he’s been instructed to do are working.
“With occupational therapy, we like to get them back to their prior level of independence,” Good Samaritan Society – Comforcare occupational therapist Allyssa Tomlinson said.
