Recovery and Rhabilitation (R&R)

By definition complex systems are difficult to know and understand. Without interference these systems usually function as expected but occasionally they malfunction or they are injured. The choice to intervene may not be an option but the manner of intervention is always open to question. The human body, the environment, the interaction of the two and health are at the pinnacle of complex systems. Powerful tools provide the means for discovery of increasing amounts of ever finer details about organ systems and biological processes in the human body but the understanding of how these details function together in the intact person is elusive. The technology of the human body exceeds that of medical care and healing depends upon the higher technology. Medical care assists the technology of the human body and there is much to learn about assisting so as to facilitate healing and rehabilitation.
