Answer

Physical therapy and occupational therapy

  • Physical therapy and occupational therapy are critical to the recovery of the patient under treatment. Medical treatment may make the patient feel weak, a feeling that may respond well to therapy.

  • The patient may also have a great deal of problems with voluntary movement and fine motor skills.
