Nursing in Rehabilitation

The goal of nursing in rehabilitation is to assist individuals with a disability and/or chronic illness to attain and maintain maximum function. The nurse assists patients in adapting to an altered lifestyle, while providing a therapeutic environment for patients and their family’s development. The rehabilitation staff nurse designs and implements treatment strategies that are based on scientific nursing theory related to self-care and that promote physical, psychosocial, and spiritual health.

Muscles and Joints Management

Spasticity is increased, involuntary, velocity-dependent muscle tone that causes resistance to movement. It is most commonly seen in spinal cord injury, trauma to the brain, or inflammatory conditions. Spasticity is characterized by hyper tonicity, hyperactive stretch reflexes and clonus. Spasticity typically occurs below the level of neurological lesion among people who have upper motor neuron lesions.

Nurses working in rehabilitation are experienced and knowledgeable around a range of rehabilitative interventions which will include bladder, bowel, and skin management; management of spasticity, autonomic dysreflexia, sexuality and fertility, psychosocial issues and patient education for self-care and management. Patients in these situations are often emotionally traumatized and vulnerable; aggression and challenging behavior is not uncommon.

Nurses add value to the rehabilitation process by helping and encouraging the patient to transfer the skills learned in therapy sessions to their daily routine, in addition to the unique nursing contributions around continence and skin management.
