    "Physical medicine and rehabilitation are the health care specialties focused on restoring the health and functional abilities of people after acute illness or injury such as stroke, spinal cord injuries, heart surgery, amputation, joint replacement, sports injuries or spinal disorders" according to http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/rehab/

    Hey, i am going to be volunteering on a rehab ward soon. The nurse on the ward said they have patients who have injured themselves in motor bike accidents, with brain injuries, patients who have had strokes and loads of other stuff. It's mostly about helping the patients learn how to be self sufficient again, because many of them have lost their motor skills etc.

    yes, I would agree with you, It could be Physiotherapy, which deals with massages and therapies.

    no its not physiotherapy..and physiotherapy deals with a lot more than massage il let any of you knieve medical students know.. this area of medicine is far more specialised in the US and will involve close interaction with physiotherapists but it is by no means solely physiotherapy and is a medical speciaity in itself!

    It's a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. A physician having completed training in this field is referred to as a physiatrist or rehab medicine specialist. Physiatrists specialize in restoring optimal function to people with injuries to the muscles, bones, tissues, and nervous system such as stroke patients. Good Luck! :)
