Treatment Settings

Occupational therapists (OT) practice in a variety of treatment settings including hospitals, outpatient centers, burn units, pain management clinics, rehabilitation centers, school systems, skilled nursing facilities, community settings, home health, and work settings. Subsequently, persons with acute or chronic pain may be referred to OT at various points in their recovery. Table 15.1 provides a summary of diagnoses associated with pain that OT commonly treat. Ideally, clients are referred to OT during early stages of acute pain or upon initial diagnosis of a chronic pain-related syndrome to provide early intervention or prevent increased dysfunction.
