The Ins and Outs of Short-Term Rehabilitation

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), roughly 2.4 billion people worldwide have a health condition that could benefit from rehabilitation services. Recovering from surgery, an injury, or learning to deal with a chronic condition can be taxing and strenuous for anyone. Luckily, short-term rehabilitation facilities like Monument Health Group’s, can make recovery after an injury, surgery, or the onset or relapse of an illness easier and more likely to be successful.
