Efficacy unveiled: A comprehensive exploration of targeted occupational therapy interventions across diverse ailments-stroke, traumatic brain injury, and chronic pain


Author(s): Pooja Kaushik and Shubham Sharma

Abstract: Occupational therapy (OT) plays a pivotal role in enhancing the functional independence and quality of life for individuals grappling with diverse conditions, including stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and chronic pain. This paper offers a comprehensive literature review on the efficacy of targeted occupational therapy interventions tailored to tackle the distinct challenges posed by each of these conditions.Drawing from an extensive exploration of over 18 articles encompassing scholarly works, research papers, and clinical studies, we examine evidence-based interventions that encompass a wide array of occupational therapy techniques. Our selection process ensures a thorough understanding of the current landscape, underpinning the investigation into the most effective interventions. The research delves into the impact of these interventions on motor recovery, activities of daily living (ADLs), cognitive function, and overall quality of life.For stroke rehabilitation, the paper delves into evidence-based interventions such as constraint-induced movement therapy, mirror therapy, and task-specific training. It assesses their impact on motor recovery, activities of daily living (ADLs), and overall functional outcomes among stroke survivors. In the realm of traumatic brain injury, the study investigates cognitive rehabilitation approaches, visual-perceptual interventions, and compensatory strategies designed to address cognitive deficits, executive functions, and psychosocial aspects of TBI recovery.Concerning chronic pain management, the paper examines the effectiveness of OT interventions in pain reduction, coping strategies, and functional restoration. Techniques like graded activity, cognitive-behavioural therapy, and ergonomic modifications are explored within the context of chronic pain management.
