Spontaneous recovery

December 9, 2017

The recovery that occurs as damage to body tissue heals. This type of recovery occurs with or without rehabilitation and it is very difficult to know how much improvement is spontaneous and how much is due to rehabilitative interventions. However, when the recovery is guided by an experienced rehabilitation team, complications can be anticipated and minimized, the return of function can be channeled in useful directions and in progressive steps so that the eventual outcome is the best that is possible.
