Greetings

The Department of Rehabilitation Medicine is a specialty that helps those with disabilities caused by medical illness and accident-related injuries live independently by promoting their physical, mental, social, and potential abilities under a given condition. Rehabilitation treatment will be offered to patients having paralysis caused by stroke, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injury, children with cerebral palsy and developmental retardation, and patients having difficulties in daily activities and a social life due to weakened cardiopulmonary functions by aging, chronic disorders, or pain related to a variety of muscular skeletal diseases.

As a demand for the improved quality of life increases in patients by recovering their damaged body functions and maximizing the ability to use the remaining functions beyond treating the disease itself, as medical technologies advance. To meet the needs, we strive to help patients live a normal life to the fullest by accurately diagnosing an impaired functioning and pain caused by various diseases, accidents, and damage in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) or peripheral nervous system and musculoskeletal system, and providing comprehensive rehabilitation services such as physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Therefore, a team that consists of a physical therapist, an occupational therapist, a speech therapist, and a rehabilitation nurse offers a comprehensive and systematic treatment to each patient as well as continuous education on rehabilitation to patients and their families.
