Rehabilitation is easy to do badly and difficult to do well. Many people are involved in the process, and must act as a team to support the patient with good communication and teamwork. The whole process can be satisfying to all concerned when dealing with motivated and enthusiastic patients. Measuring the process is achievable and gives credibility and support to the initial hypothesis of the individual's rehabilitation program. Rehabilitation involves creativity using science and art, with the end result being the patient's return to a normal life or ability to excel within their sport.
