A great rap video on You Tube, thanks to the author Reynaldo Ballesteros and his crew and thanks to my OT colleague, Mistie Hanks, MOT, OTR/L for finding it and bringing it to my attention.

The Lyrics are as follows:

if you had a cva, that could be a problem
major depression, that could be a problem
total hip replacement, that could be a problem
ADHD in school, that could be a problem
if you got carpal tunnel, that could be a problem
cant do adls,that could be a problem
so if you or anyone have these problems,
us OTs, we can help you solve them

push up, don’t let me push you down
manual muscle test, we have a baseline now
initial assessment, now we got your profile
ooh within functional limits, i see your strengths now
OT’s, haven’t heard of me?
never met a position as versatile as me
from mental health to phys dis to peds
help you get dressed, from your head to your feet
cause i’m your OT, your OT OT,your one and only
only joking, i’m one of many, and we’re all hoping
that you’re showing, progress and growing, or that you’re knowing
what OT is, and your safe and independent
they say occupations are only jobs
they couldn’t be more wrong
its every single thing that you do every day
every little activity, from work to play, okay?

if you had a cva, that could be a problem
major depression, that could be a problem
total hip replacement, that could be a problem
ADHD in school, that could be a problem
if you got carpal tunnel, that could be a problem
cant do adls,that could be a problem
so if you or anyone have these problems,
us OTs, we can help you solve them

oooh, if you need help puttin those sneakers on
if you hemiplegic or you have no use of either arm
if you have some tremors, and your cant get your eating on,
if you’re hearing voices and can’t get your sleeping on, oh word?
wrist problems, get your splinting on,
low vision, bigger letters get your reading on
if you wanna live alone, get your independence on,
then jusssst (ok i got it)
then just, come to therapy and go along
with your treatment plan, discharge aint that far along
cause all the stuff your talking bout’s up for discussion
we’re here for what you want, and to aid for your progression
if you’re hearin weird voices telling you to do something
all you gotta do is say no and don’t trust them
Yes sir, we do say this often
to be strong and functional is what we talkin, OT!

we’ll go work with your family
reach your goals, with the help of therapy
let me know what you want and what’ll make you happy
never boring cause as OTs we are crafty
got your goals on my mind, roles on my mind
adaptive equipment, use it you’ll feel fine
eyeing’ me like a reacher don’t exist
well, it’ll help you reach those chips
well, i’ll be your OT
basically, i’ll help you do things you need
and so you’ll do it independently
all occupations you can think of, they’ll be
attainable, no matter what others say
we’ll do our best to find a way
built up handles, extended reacher
good job this session, i’ll see ya, next week
