Background: Therapeutic physical culture as a component of physical rehabilitation is used in the treatment of various diseases in neurology, cardiology, pulmonology, traumatology, orthopedics, dentistry, nephrology and pediatrics. In the study, we provide comparative data on the treatment of the wounded results and patients with advanced use of therapeutic physical culture during the Second World War.

Methods: In a retrospective study, the reports of hospitals and evacuation centers received by the Main Military Medical Administration of the Red Army from 1942 to 1945 from medical institutions of the Military Districts were analyzed.

Results: It has been established that with an improvement in the setting of medical physical culture in medical institutions, the number of those returned to the duty has increased and the duration of their treatment is reduced.

Conclusion: Historical and literary data, as well as practical experience in the use of physical exercises for medical and rehabilitation purposes, indicate the high effectiveness of this area of treatment and rehabilitation. The further development of the use of therapeutic physical culture should be in accordance with the development of clinical and preventive medicine.
