Established in October 1991, the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine was originally known as the Department of Physiotherapy before the year 1952. It is one of the teaching departments in China which are authorized to grant Master and Doctorate Degrees in rehabilitation medicine. As one of the earliest departments in the hospital, the department provides 45 inpatient beds, treats more than 600 inpatients and handles more than 10 thousand patient visits per year.

 

For the past decades, the department has brought in cutting-edge medical equipment and technologies from the international platform, and developed its own featured treatments for stroke, craniocerebral trauma, spinal cord injury, cervical spondylosis, lumbocrural pain, etc. By applying nerve electrical stimulation and radiofrequency ablation, it is now in the leading position nationwide, regarding assessments and therapeutic treatments for lumbar disc herniation, limb disfunction from hemiplegia and spinal cord injury, incontinence of urine, pain, and limb spasm.  As one of the frist to start transcranial magnetic stimulation, the department also takes the lead in establishing the first training base for botulinum toxin injection technique in Southern China. While building close cooperative relationships with Hong Kong  Polytechnic University and rehabilitation institutes such as Hong Kong Occupational Therapy Association, it has built up the patient referral system with several secondary hospitals.
