Rehabilitation Medicine

  • Philip S. King
  • Robert Chen-Zong Yang


Rehabilitation is the process of helping an individual with a significant disability to achieve his or her highest potential from physical, psychological, social, and vocational/economic stand–points. Since its earliest years, rehabilitation medicine has relied on interdisciplinary team management for patients with complicated or extensive disabilities. Meaningful rehabilitation requires active efforts of the patient—instructed, guided, and supported by the team. Rehabilitation is, in many ways, an educational process; if it is to be effective, a patient must be physically and mentally capable of learning and must desire a rehabilitation goal sufficiently to work diligently at achieving it.
