Rehabilitation at rehab centers abroad for adults and children

Rehabilitation which may also be referred to as rehab is a period after an illness, trauma, or surgery that implies healing. In cases of serious injury or operative treatment, a rehabilitee may need to regain his/her previous skills such as walking, talking, etc.

In 2012, Canadian rehabilitation programs provided assistance to 1.2 million rehabilitees, UK hospitals helped 957,000 adults while in China this number made 4 million people.

Types of rehabilitation programs encompass:

  • occupational rehab (for patients who have suffered an injury at work and need to be returned to their workplace)
  • physical rehab (for patients who have been in an accident and need to strengthen their bones and muscles)
  • drug rehab (for drug addicted patients who need to undergo drug-free withdrawal)
  • aquatic rehab (novel method of patients with joint disorders)
  • cognitive rehab (for patients with brain injuries who need to recover both physical and social functions)

Patients looking for rehab programs also read about sex reassignment, transplant surgery, and immunotherapy.
