Abstract

Rehabilitation of patients with burn injuries aims to restore strength, coordination, and mobility as closely to normal as possible and should begin immediately after initial admission. In the acute phase, baseline assessments are made against which all subsequent rehabilitation success is held. In the intermediate phase, active, full range-of-motion movement, ambulation of steadily increasing distances, and resistive exercise and stretching aid in the prevention of muscle and bone atrophy and preserve muscle memory and coordination. In the long-term outpatient rehabilitation phase, individualized patient-centered exercise programs can be advantageous in achieving measurable and lasting positive rehabilitation outcomes.
