The history of the emergence of rehabilitation centers
Psychological support for patients began to be provided at the end of the eighteenth century. Above all, a similar trend began developing in America. It was in the United States, at the beginning of the twentieth century, that clinics, using a variety of measures to solve the patients' psychological problems, started functioning.
The scientific definition of the concept of rehabilitation was first given by F. Namist in 1903. The Association of Rehabilitation Therapy was therefore founded in this country in 1917. Special training for professional doctors providing rehabilitation services began during the same period.
The success of the rehabilitation process was recognized by the world community. This was reflected by the emergence of national rehabilitation programs supervised by the UN Economic and Social Council.
The widespread opening of rehabilitation centers falls under our time. At the end of the twentieth century, rehabilitation services began to appear at treatment centers, and separate wards and departments were opened.
