Medical rehabilitation aims at enhancing and restoring functional ability and treating the consequences and physical impairments after illness, surgery or accident. Rehabilitation goals may include strengthening atrophied muscles and/or relearning motion sequences.
Rehabilitation aims at removing existing restrictions, e.g. after stroke, in cases of muscle weakness or incontinence, by individually designed therapies (physiotherapy, ergotherapy, speech therapy, biofeedback, electrotherapy, etc.).
Muscle weakness can occur after accident, surgery and illness. For instance, after shoulder, arm, hip, knee injury, various spinal cord diseases (herniated disk, back pain, etc.) or atrophies, denervated muscles due to, e.g., peripheral neural lesion and incomplete tetraplegia.
Symptom-oriented treatment of muscle weakness includes rehabilitation by muscle strengthening to improve endurance, blood circulation and mobility.

Incontinence should no longer be a taboo issue because it is a prevalent problem particularly with increasing age. Patients should not accept their urinary or fecal incontinence because they feel embarrassed. They should take action and see a doctor to discover the causes of their incontinence. Diagnosis is necessary to find the suitable treatment to completely or partially cure or learn to control incontinence.
