Using ‘Occupation’ as the Focus for Therapy in Supporting Individuals at Work
‘Occupation’ represents any meaningful activity and includes the areas of self-care, productivity, and play/leisure. Evidence suggests activity engagement increases occupational involvement and decreases pain. An overview of the evidence for workplace interventions (ergonomic, exercise, and organizational) for pain reduction will be presented.
