Rehabilitation medicine (RM) focuses on a goal-directed process of rehabilitation for people with conditions of sudden onset (eg head injury, limb loss, spinal cord injury) and for people with progressive conditions (eg multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular disorders).
The goal of rehabilitation therapy is to teach people how to take care of themselves as much as possible. The focus is often on daily tasks such as eating, bathing, using the bathroom and moving from a wheelchair to a bed.
Sometimes, the goal is more challenging, such as restoring full function to one or more parts of the body.
Rehabilitation often also takes place in a skilled nursing facility or rehabilitation center outside of a hospital.
