Rehabilitation Q & A

What is rehabilitation?

Medical rehabilitation is a treatment, or a series of treatments, to restore all or some of a patient's mental, physical, and sensory abilities that he or she has lost due to disease, injury, or illness and to facilitate recovery.

Patients undergo rehabilitation under the supervision of a qualified therapist who specializes in their specific illness, or injury. The amount of rehabilitation that a patient will need can vary according to the condition for which he or she is being treated.

What are the types of rehabilitation that patients can receive?

The main types of rehabilitation are:

  • Occupational. This type of rehabilitation helps restore a patient's ability to perform routine daily activity after illness, disease, or injury.
  • Physical. This type of rehabilitation helps restore a patient’s mobility through various techniques that include exercise, heat and cold treatment, and massage.

Rehabilitation treatments may vary for patients, so it’s important to find out which type would benefit you the most.

What are the benefits of rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation can reverse the effects of potentially disabling conditions, and it can help a patient maintain his or her quality of life despite having an irreparable physical impairment. It can also help a patient maintain his or her independence and return to a regular routine as fully as possible.

Rehabilitation can also make it easier to manage pain associated with recovery from certain injuries or surgeries and may even shorten recovery time in some cases.
