Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

This quantitative cross-sectional survey design study conducted with 409 OTs investigated the influence of practice and personal context factors on the choices that OTs have in addressing upper-extremity contractures. For interventions that had a high likelihood of being used, specifically static splinting, stretching/PROM, and positioning, there were no practice context barriers found, yet it was with these interventions that there was little belief in their effectiveness.
