You might work with an occupational therapist when you’re injured or if you have a disability. They rehabilitate and assist patients with every day activities, such as eating, getting dressed, working and attending social events. This includes self-care, leisure and work-related activities that lead to increased independence and development. Their goal is to empower people to still live the life they want despite any physical, developmental, social and/or emotional issues they might face.

If you’re a pilot, flight attendant or astronaut, you may benefit from consulting with an aerospace medical physician. They specialize in health risks and conditions associated with traveling into abnormal air and space environments, usually caused by pressure and altitude changes or reduced oxygen levels. This includes hypoxia, ebullism and hypobaria.
Other areas of expertise include jet lag, dehydration and your body’s response to thermal stress, which can influence your decision making ability. More serious conditions might include G-induced loss of consciousness (known as G-LOC), spatial disorientation and space adaptation syndrome, a sickness common when your body is adjusting to weightlessness.

I had been injured on 3-7-2010 and came to his office for care. Hoping to get the help I needed. I didn't receive I was getting better care at ER. He thought even after I had leading doctors in there fields insisted I needed surgeries he said it was phantom pains. I need better medications which he didn't want to provide which I had to go to the ER to get I was going to the ER so much the staff and the main doctor we were on first name basis. I was taking 800mg of ibuprofen he proscribed as needed. No not me I was dosing at 3200mg to 4000mg every 4 hour just try to slow the pain. I tried to get better medications I got the same sad story with protest "I can't proscribe anything stronger" even tho this was a at work incident and that they would pay for it. Do to that I got shafted by their insurance company cause he said I was alright nothing was a matter. Now 6 years later out of work for all that time I'm still in pain had to go on medicaid to find doctors that would listen and to get the surgeries I badly needed and that should have been done back then. So if you want someone who will be there for you please don't count on them to be there when you need them.
