Is rehabilitation useful?

There is now the highest level of scientific evidence that rehabilitation is useful for a multitude of disorders. Chronic back and neck pain, arthritis, stroke and fibromyalgia are just a few conditions that have been shown to improve with rehabilitation. Patients recovering from major surgery have been shown to have short admissions, better functional improvement and reduced medical complications.

Rehabilitation is simple common sense. It is intuitive that improving exercise tolerance, increasing activity and managing pain will have a beneficial effect on improving a person's quality of life.
