Rehabilitation after peripheral nerve lesions involves several professional groups such as medical doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and orthopaedic technicians. The therapy goal is not only to treat the immediate symptoms due to the nerve lesion but also to avoid secondary damage. Peripheral nerve lesions often lead to severe functional limitations that affect the quality of life and professional and social participation and require appropriately targeted intervention in this regard.
