Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

Our sample with nerve injury had substantial disability and greater work disability, which closely correlated with poorer quality of life. Work status was integral in predicting disability. Addressing work, household tasks, sleep, and intimate relationships in occupational therapy is indicated, in addition to sensorimotor deficits.
