What is Sub-Acute Rehabilitation?

Sub-Acute Rehabilitation is much less intrusive than acute rehabilitation. A combination of physical, occupational and speech therapy are often available in a sub-acute setting, and the patients tend to receive a lower number of hours of therapy when compared to patients in an acute setting. Specifically, the patients in a sub-acute facility typically receive one or two hours of therapy per day. However, for patients at a sub-acute facility, the number of days of treatment is usually a lot longer than the number of days spent at an acute hospital or rehabilitation unit.
