Rehabilitation describes specialized healthcare dedicated to improving, maintaining or restoring physical strength, coordination, and mobility with maximized results. Typically, rehabilitation helps people gain greater independence after illness, injury or surgery. Rehabilitation can also be explained as the process of helping an individual achieve the highest level of function, independence, and quality of life possible. Rehabilitation does not reverse or undo the damage caused by disease or trauma, but rather helps restore the individual to optimal health, functioning, and well-being.
Rehab management commonly includes prescription of or assistance with specific exercises, manual therapies and manipulation, mechanical devices such as traction, education, physical agents which includes heat, cold, electricity, prescription of assistive devices, braces, orthoses, and other interventions.
