Information on this website should not be considered a substitute for professional advice. Contributors to this site will not provide health advice to readers. Should a reader freely choose to follow the opinion of a contributor (who has not done a proper history or physical examination and whose credentials cannot be verified) over that of his or her own personal health care team, it is the reader’s decision alone, for which they must bear full responsibility.
The best source of information about your health is a registered, licensed health professional who can perform a proper history/examination or that knows your health history. In general, be wary of any website offering specific health advice, as without a proper medical history, some health professionals may unintentionally recommend treatments that are contraindicated.
OTs follow a nationally-instituted Code of Ethics and provincial professional regulations.
There is no financial support for the contributors or revenue from this website, either directly or indirectly. Sometimes ads and links appear on this blog that are automatically generated by WordPress and the contributors do not necessarily agree with their content or endorse any products.
