Medical rehabilitation helps individuals with disabilities attain and then maintain optimal functioning of their body. It does so by reducing the impact of their health condition and teaching the person basic life-tasks like eating and walking.
Rehab focuses on increasing the existing capacity of individuals with handicaps. The therapy aims to maximise the functional ability of a person with the help of:
- Medical care providers
- Social workers
- And vocational measures
Even though rehabilitation can aid a person in regaining regular life, it is often the most neglected sector of healthcare. In particular, the disability policies set by the government.
