Introduction
The study aim was to determine the leading components of the motivation to attend systematic physical therapy classes in demobilized combatants.

Methods
Theoretical analysis, sociological methods (questionnaire for prioritizing motives for rehabilitation), pedagogical experiment, as well as mathematical and statistical methods were applied. The research involved 110 demobilized soldiers who were undergoing rehabilitation.

Results
From among the proposed motives, the most significant ones were the combatant’s desire to feel better, not to experience physical discomfort from the injury, and to have a good relationship in the family.

Conclusions
Post-traumatic stress disorder, which can develop in combatants, negatively affects the desire to undergo rehabilitation. The study of significant motives, depending on age, confirms the need to involve family members before the rehabilitation process commencement and the importance of providing official employment for young combatants after returning home.
