Optimal rehabilitation of patients after burn injury requires the organised application of sound, recognised principles. The basic concerns are the prevention of loss of joint motion, loss of muscle mass, and the prevention of anatomical deformities. Important considerations are starting the rehabilitative programme as early as possible after injury and avoiding techniques which unduly immobilise the patient or parts of the body. The use of early active motion to the patient and all movable joints, along with appropriate positioning while at rest, is crucial to a successful programme. Passive exercising along with the use of restraints and splints are necessary in certain patients.
