Services > Rehabilitation & Training

Physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), also known as physiatry or rehabilitation medicine, is defined as a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. Physiatrists specialize in restoring optimal function to people with injuries to the muscles, bones, tissues, and nervous system (such as stroke patients). Rehabilitation of people with disabilities is a process aimed at enabling them to reach and maintain their optimal physical, sensory, intellectual, psychological and social functional levels. Rehabilitation provides disabled people with the tools they need to attain independence and self-determination.

Amputee training

All amputees go through a period of gait training. Failure of proper training lead to failure to use the prostheses properly. The team approach to gait training is best as is provided useful feedback to all members of the team who will take corrective action where indicated.

Different rehabilitation units offer different programs where support is concerned. There may be a number of supports available for persons going through rehabilitation related to coping with disability, including community reintegration. Other forms of support may include home safety assessment, dysphagia management, skin and wound management, nutrition management, medication management, orthotic services, audiology services, vision services, self-care retraining, and communication retraining among others.
