Functional outcome of TBI improved by post acute physical therapy

Writing in PM&R (physical medicine and rehabilitation) Dr. Hayden and colleagues from Pate Rehabilitation, Dallas TX show that post acute rehabilitation undertaken at a postacute treatment facility is associated with functional gains for individuals with TBI over those that can be expected from undirected recovery. They also suggest that their findings provide evidence for postacute rehabilitation as the standard of care after TBI as all patients saw functional improvement regardless of time since injury. However, individuals admitted sooner after injury demonstrated the best functional improvement.
