WHAT IS REHABILITATION?
Injuries and surgeries have become very common in the recent years. The recovery from injuries take different treatments and methods for complete cure. Part of the recovery process is rehabilitation. Rehabilitation helps restore the lost functional ability back to the individual. This requires consistent and persistent efforts with the guidance of experienced therapists such as Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists, Speech-Language pathologists and Neuropsychologists. Rehabilitation is not limited to recovering from certain habits or illnesses. It also includes recuperation from prolonged acute or chronic diseases. “Rehab” should not be a stigma on the road to good health and recovery.
WHY JH REHABILITATION?
There are very few rehabilitation centres in Chennai that provides a wide range of post treatment care. Among those that do, daily supervision of a patient by a Physician who specializes in Rehabilitation is lacking. We are a physician-led centre, that provides a comprehensive care involving various therapies and takes an interdisciplinary approach (i.e. care being provided by various therapies in a coordinated fashion). We are the first in the nation to introduce a community reintegration program called “EMPOWER”.Community reintegration can be defined as “the state where the individual controls and directs his own life by independently participating in activities including education and meaningful employment".The goal is to integrate every member that is part of the program back into the community and be a productive member. Our rehabilitation centre in Chennai provides quality services at a reasonable cost.
