Mostly, women and men have similar healthcare needs and challenges. Nevertheless, women need special attention during pregnancy and prenatal stages as they face comparatively more problems than men. The women’s health issues are mainly increasing in emerging countries and need to be addressed by attention from caregivers. Thus, rehabilitation is essential for women to live a healthier life. Rehabilitation therapies, such as physical, occupational, massage, chiropractic, hydro or aquatic, vestibular rehabilitation, speech, and compression therapies help maintain women’s health.
Rehabilitation programs include body training or exercise, monitoring of body vitals, education about healthy habits, and various other activities. Rehabilitation also helps reduce mental and physical disabilities; recover from acute or chronic injuries or illnesses; and restore physical, occupational, psychiatric, and cognitive functions.
