Understanding the Art and Science of Rehabilitation Medicine

Rehabilitation describes specialized healthcare dedicated to improving, maintaining or restoring physical strength, cognition and mobility with maximized results. Typically, rehabilitation helps people gain greater independence after illness, injury or surgery.

Always delivered by a diverse team of experts, rehabilitation blends many specialties for the best treatment plan, such as:

  • Physical therapy for increased strength and mobility
  • Occupational therapy for improved everyday living skills
  • Speech and language therapy for improved communication

Enhanced healing and function with rehabilitation therapy

Rehabilitation plays a critical role in healing, repair and recovery in a wide range of injuries, illnesses and conditions:

Rehabilitation therapy pairs a team of expert doctors, nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals with advanced technology. Each plan is custom-designed for the patient’s diverse individual needs.

Also at HealthSouth, rehabilitation decisions are guided by an advanced outcomes-based system. Few organizations have similar experience and depth. It comes from helping thousands of patients and families through the aid of leading-edge rehabilitation in a proven nationwide network.

"My dad was a paraplegic for most of his life, but he never let it stop him. He came home from the war, put his life back together, got a master’s degree and taught for 30 plus years. I never considered him to have a disability as a kid. And, now that I am older, I’m humbled by the barriers he must have had to overcome. I just want to help others lead their lives to the fullest like he did.”
