Even 20–30 years ago rehabilitation was considered as a secondary discipline, more related to social security. Then an increasing number of medical institutions began to allocate individual hospital beds, and then entire departments for rehabilitation. Today it has taken an important place among the leading medical and social areas that are being developed in the world. This is also due to economic benefits. Ignoring the problem of restoring the working capacity of patients in terms of money is much more expensive than conducting active rehabilitation at an early stage of the disease, when it is still possible to restore the patient to the highest possible level of his physical, psychological and social-economic usefulness. Indeed, only a very rich country can afford to increase the number of disabled and socially dependent persons, and therefore rehabilitation is not a luxury, but an important practical task of public health. After all, the goal of treating a patient is not only to save his life, but also the ability to independent existence. Scientific studies have convincingly shown that under conditions of a properly designed rehabilitation program, about 50% of seriously ill patients can be returned to active life. And the innovative and high-tech methods of treatment developed at the Medical Rehabilitation Clinic help to speed up this process.
