Rehabilitation Expert Witnesses
Rehabilitation is care that helps an individual recover or improve abilities for daily life that they lost due to injury, illness, or disease. This includes helping patients to compensate for impairments that cannot be reversed. There are three main types of rehabilitation, physical, occupational, and speech. Physical rehabilitation helps restore functional ability through a variety of exercise and treatment. Occupational therapy is the practice of returning injured workers to a level of work activity suitable to their functional and cognitive abilities. Speech therapy involves the diagnosis and treatment of patients with communication difficulties and trouble swallowing.
