Rehabilitation is “a set of measures that assist individuals, who experience or are likely to experience disability, to achieve and maintain optimal functioning in interaction with their environments". It involves identification of a person’s problems and needs, relating the problems to relevant factors of the person and the environment, defining rehabilitation goals, planning and implementing the measures, and assessing the effects.

PMR, also known as Physiatry is about patient-centered care and maximizing independence and mobility with the goal of returning patients to their role in society. It is unique among medical fields in that the area of expertise addresses function of the whole patient, as compared with a focus on an organ system or systems.
