In brief: Strengthening

By strengthening the muscles that support the joints, and the back, rehab can make it less likely that you will reinjure the same area.

In brief: See below

Rehab helps to slowly reintroduce the affected/injured area to normal or near normal use through a variety of techniques that pt and ot professional specialize in.
How it may prevent injuries is to strengthen the area so an injury from the forces that before might have caused the injury will now not create the same problem.
