The role of exercise in reversing the consequences of bed rest has been well documented. It is also clear that exercise after hospital discharge is critically important for facilitating physical functional and metabolic recovery following a major burn injury [14, 63]. The role of exercise during the critical care and acute care hospitalization following burn injury has not been fully described. The purpose of this section is to describe the importance of positioning, mobilization up out of bed, and aerobic exercise during the acute stage can be safely incorporated into the treatment plan following burn injury.
