Rehabilitation can be defined as the process that maximizes one’s physical, mental, social, vocational and educational status. Rehabilitation is a dynamic process, and all branches of clinical medicine are widely exploited. The goal in rehabilitation services is to achieve optimal function against permanent disability.
Rehabilitation is an integral part of medical care including acute care, re-activation and re-accommodation. Rehabilitation should not be considered as a separate phase following diagnosis and treatment. Rehabilitation is not just exercise. Exercises are one of the means of rehabilitation.
Comprehensive and integrated rehabilitation will increase the independence of the person, shorten the length of stay in the hospital, improve the quality of life and provide the possibility of returning to work.
