Abstract

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of how burn rehabilitation should be conducted along the continuum of care. The authors emphasize the importance of early rehabilitative interventions such as positioning, splinting, exercise, and functional mobility in the intensive care unit. They proceed to discuss and illustrate the various modalities practiced in burn rehabilitation, focusing on producing the best functional and cosmetic outcomes at the completion of the rehabilitative process.
