Rehabilitation refers to the process of helping a patient recover from a serious injury or illness. Patients often have to regain strength and learn new ways of completing normal, daily activities. Physical therapy focuses on building strength and mobility after disease, injury or surgery. Occupational therapy focuses on activities of daily living, i.e. showering, dressing and eating. Speech therapy focuses on improving swallowing, language and cognitive skills, i.e. problem solving and decision making.
