PM&R arguably began around World War II after soldiers returned from war with injury or disability. Physician pioneers in the medical field noticed that early physical medical therapies and treatments that were aimed at restoring function proved to be much more effective for patients than the passive treatments of that time. Over the years, medical treatments have evolved to the more well known therapies of today. However, the primary goal of returning a patient to a functional status remains unchanged.
