Rehabilitation tries to give the maximum potential and capacities back to the patients. The objective is to restore strength and mobility and increase self care and independence. Rehabilitation, support and counselling should begin at an early stage of the illness if maximum results are to be achieved.

Each patient referred for rehabilitation is assessed by the rehabilitation specialist doctor and a patient-specific programme of activities is drawn up, which the physiotherapist then carries out. Both the patient, family and carers are taught self-care to maintain autonomy and a feeling of control over the situation they are living through. Every effort is made to maintain and recover the patient’s capacities.

The physiotherapist, under the supervision of the rehabilitation specialist doctor, is able to give treatments to reduce secondary complications due to immobilisation, control pain and other symptoms such as lymphoedema and breathlessness, prevent bed-sores, increase physical autonomy, etc.
