Evaluation methods for rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries and diseases

Planning and implementation of various rehabilitation programmes is done based on the characteristics of each case in the Laboratory, beginning when the condition of the patient is acute and concluding with his/her return to action. The aim of the research conducted in the laboratory is to compare different protocols concerning the results the protocols had on the patients condition.
