Neuroplasticity, strokes and occupational therapy go together like peanut butter and jelly. They all need each other to help maximize the outcomes and occupational performance of our patients (or in the case of the sandwich, just taste delicious 😉).
Crystal Cabrera MS OTR/L and Certified Stroke Rehab Specialist shares the research on how to step up our games as occupational therapy practitioners by integrating the 10 Principles of Neuroplasticity into our practice.
1. Print off this "10 Principles of Neuroplasticity" pdf so you can review them with your patients and get off on the right track!
2. Even though the principles are research supported, there is no concrete definition of "how much" each of these need to be done to maximize recovery.
3. Occupational therapy practitioners can integrate these principles into their practice today, without extra training.

SwiftRec is a free tool helping Occupational Therapy practitioners keep track of the products they recommend, be able to share a link for that product directly with a client or caregiver during a therapy session, and protect clinician personal information like email and cell numbers.
