What is clinical rehabilitation?
A lot of people who have a musculoskeletal dysfunction will attend physiotherapy sessions or be prescribed rehabilitation exercises to do at home, the local gym or in a hospital clinic. For anyone who suffers a major trauma (a very serious injury or wound), rehabilitation is far more intense. In these cases, access to equipment and specialists not normally available at a local level is required – known as “clinical rehabilitation”.
The NHS, Department of Health and the British Society for Rehabilitation Medicine have agreed on a definition:
“Rehabilitation is a process of assessment, treatment and management by which the individual (and their family and carers) are supported to achieve their maximum potential for physical, cognitive, social and psychological function, participation in society and quality of living.”
How do I access clinical rehabilitation?
Specialist clinical rehab is usually delivered by a multi-faceted, multi-disciplined healthcare team who are experienced in rehabilitation. This normally includes a consultant trained and accredited in rehab medicine or neuropsychiatry (for cognitive or behavioural rehabilitation).
We work closely with healthcare specialists to provide the highest standards of rehabilitation care. Ask a member of our team for more information.
