Rehabilitation ("Rehab") helps relieve pain or other impairments which result from treatment.

Rehab services should include consultations with appropriate board-certified or licensed clinicians in rehabilitation medicine, including physiatrists (doctors who specialize in rehabilitation medicine), rehabilitation nurses, and physical, occupational, and speech therapists.

When an impairment is documented by a health professional, and the treatment is provided by a professional, Rehab is generally covered by health insurance, including Medicare.

Exercise under the supervision of a physical therapist is.
