:$ I woul like to know what type of therapy occupational therapy provides to Guillian Barre' syndrome.

Loading...

A supportive care of the person that has the Guillian Barre’s syndrome is vital for the successful management. The patient will need rehabilitation to regain lost functions.
Occupational therapy professionals should be involved early in the rehabilitation program to promote upper body strengthening, ROM, and activities to promote functional self-care. Both restorative and compensatory strategies can be used to promote functional improvements. Energy conservation techniques and work simplification also may be helpful, especially if the patient demonstrates poor strength and endurance. Depending on a local structuring of health care, the team of therapists is established. An occupational therapist will help a patient achieve ADL independence by using wheel chair and cutlery. Approximately 80% of all the patients have the complete recovery but this is considered to be a grave disease and the mortality is about 2-3%.
