Compared with physical rehabilitation, psychological rehabilitation of patients is also particularly important


There are many departments in the hospital, and some departments, if you just listen to the name, it is not clear what the department is, or what kind of patients. Rehabilitation medicine is one of the most typical examples.

Rehabilitation department is a particularly easy to be despised or even ignored department.

Many people do not understand the rehabilitation department, and to a large extent, this department has suffered the loss of name, the word "rehabilitation" is too soft healing, the meaning is very broad, it is easy to misunderstand. As a result, this department sounds like a massage room or sanatorium where only needles and massages can be used. Some people think, "Wouldn't it be nice to go home and recuperate?" Why waste so much money on hospitals?

In addition, most of the patients waiting in line at the department door are in wheelchairs or need help from family members. They are deaf and deaf, have crooked eyes and crooked mouths, and even broken limbs. Occasionally there are screams or groans. I always thought this was a department for disabled people. This lack of understanding and prejudice towards rehabilitation departments also indirectly reflects people's lack of understanding and prejudice towards patients who need rehabilitation treatment.

Unlike dying patients in intensive care units, physical pain or the threat of a notorious illness can trigger empathy in relatively concrete forms. However, in the rehabilitation department, patients whose vital signs are relatively stable, because there is no specific life danger, often do not receive enough respect and attention. Even the closest family members will just make you "put up with it."

But in fact, in many cases, we can't find the right doctor because we don't know a department, and we miss the best time for treatment because we don't know a department. The rehabilitation department is not just for people with disabilities, but if you have been to a rehabilitation department, or have experience in rehabilitation, you may find that you should also see a rehabilitation doctor or therapist.

Do you know how many patients suffer from mental illness every year because they can't accept their disability? How many patients die because potential complications are not taken seriously? And how many patients lie in bed like a walking dead when they are capable of doing their daily tasks on their own? Many diseases do not need treatment as long as "death", long-term physical and mental torture to patients, sometimes more uncomfortable than death.

Modern rehabilitation training equipment mainly uses three categories of patients:

The first category is patients with neurological injuries, such as hemiplegia after stroke or traumatic brain injury, traumatic paraplegia, pediatric cerebral palsy, facial palsy, motor neuron disease, Parkinson's disease, dementia, dysfunction caused by nerve injury and so on;

The second category is the patients with musculoskeletal diseases, such as postoperative fracture, limb dysfunction after joint replacement, hand trauma and limb replantation, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, rheumatism, rheumatoid arthritis caused by dysfunction;

The third category is pain rehabilitation, such as acute and chronic soft tissue injury, myofasciitis, muscle, tendon, ligament injury, cervical spondylosis, lumbar disc herniation, shoulder periarthritis, tennis elbow, lumbar leg pain, etc. And then there are those with spinal injuries.

In addition, cardiopulmonary rehabilitation for other diseases such as coronary heart disease, some psychological diseases (such as autism), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is also gradually carried out. Many people actually do not really understand the rehabilitation department, thinking that the rehabilitation department is to do physiotherapy, massage, in fact, this is not the same as physiotherapy and massage.

At present, the most serious cervical spondylosis and lumbar disc herniation in society, as well as pelvic inflammatory disease in obstetrics and gynecology, postpartum urinary incontinence, tumor surgery and complications of radiotherapy and chemotherapy can be treated in the rehabilitation department. It is to be understood that rehabilitation is to restore the function of the human body that is lost or decreased.
