Mandy Chamberlain MOTR/L Podcasts 12 Comments

Have you ever wondered, "how should I be prescribing home exercise programs" or "what type of approach is best to address my patient's upper extremity dysfunction?"

Anthony Mucci COTA, discusses how we should be using a combination of a biomechanical approach in conjunction with occupation based techniques to help our patients achieve their optimal outcomes. It is definitely not a "one-size-fits-all" approach!

  1. Great podcast, Mandy! And Anthony it’s good to know that a fellow Navy Vet (I was an Airframer) is thriving in the world of OT as a COTA. The information discussed are very helpful since I am a new grad/certified OTA and a bit lost on which setting I should dive into. My fieldwork experience was pediatrics (school and outpatient), do you have tips on how I can start with the adult population on an entry-level position given that I have very minimal experience? More power, thanks!

    3. I absolutely agree with Mandy. PRN is a great way to try out a setting/company without having any strings attached so to speak. Also, many times when companies look to hire part time or full time, they go through their PRN people first and offer the position. Thank you for your service Jonny. Hooyah!

  3. Just wondering, are there any printed versions of the podcast? I find it easier to process information when I can read, rather than listen. All the topics have been pretty useful so far, so thank you very much!
