Physiotherapy led rehabilitation is a clinically and cost effective intervention for those patients whose life has been adversely changed by injury, illness or disease.
Physiotherapy rehabilitation aims to optimise patient function and well-being, to help integrate that patient back into their chosen lifestyle activities whether at home, work or leisure. Rehabilitation should focus on changes to functional disability and lifestyle restrictions based on the patient’s own goals for functional improvement.
Rehabilitation can be used for recovery from injury or disease and also for the management of long-term conditions (e.g. Parkinsons and MS).
Rehabilitation should start as soon as possible to speed recovery. The programs that combine many different components are likely to be most effective.

This is a saving in time, in money, and in human suffering, because delay has been known to lead to unnecessary tnental and physical deformities which at a later date are more difficult to repair. These then are the steps in the whole method:
