Occupational Therapy Services Perth
Occupational Therapy (OT) is a discipline that strives to facilitate clients to their optimum performance, whether this be sport, work or everyday activities. We delve into the occupational factors in a person’s daily routine that may be contributing to the pain/injury experienced.
At Perth Wellness, we aim to use soft tissue therapy which include the management of muscles, ligaments, fascia and tendons. We use hands-on treatment approach to release muscle tension, restore postural awareness and reduce pain to progress functional outcomes and aid injury prevention.
We treat a variety of individuals from babies to school children, laborers to parents, retirees to cooperate workers. Treating muscle imbalances throughout the body, improves function and therefore reduces the stress on stiff joints.
OT can help manage a wide range of conditions but not limited to:
- Neck pain
- Headaches and Migraines
- Back pain
- Arthritis and stiffness in joints
- Sporting injuries
- Performance in sporting teams
- Repetitive strains and over us injuries
- Long term postural strain
Modalities & Services include

OTs can assist with these conditions that physiotherapists and chiropractors often treat, but not only focusing on the muscular dysfunction, but investigating the activities of daily living such as work, sleep, gym and many others to help find the causes and make changes to prevent or minimize the injury impact during the activities.
Perth Wellness Practitioners work as a team to promote optimal function of the body. OTs ensure that the soft tissue structures are aligned and balances to facilitate the body to work optimally during sporting activities, therefore improve performance. Soft tissue OT releases tension and adhesion’s in muscles which in turn assists the body’s way of coping with external stressors allowing for optimal recovery from Physical, Chemical and Emotional stressors.
