The distribution, types, contents and links of resources of the system of physical rehabilitation in musculoskeletal disorders have been analyzed. The role of the information resource in the rehabilitation process has been defined. The necessity of coordinating the activities of the attending physician and the specialist of physical rehabilitation in the allocation of resources has been justified.
