Cadernos de Terapia Ocupacional Da Ufscar 24(3): 563-574



Objective: The research aimed to evaluate the ethnobotanical knowledge of farmers from Cariri, Ceara, Brazil, in the treatment of occupational back and muscles pain, considering the local culture and biodiversity. Method: The ethnobotanical data were obtained through semi-structured interviews, free list technic and snowball, and analyzed by Collective Subject Discourse and species use value methods. Results: We found 18 species; Barbatimao (Stryphnodendron rotundifolium Mart) and Sucupira (Bowdichia virgilioides Kunth) were the most cited species with use-value of 0.5 and 0.6, respectively. We found a vast wealth of information related to culture of traditional communities studied. Conclusion: Comprehension about the activities developed in agriculture allows occupational therapy to intervene and work to promote the health of farmers thereby improving their quality of life.
