Longer, Intense Rehabilitation Boosts Recovery after Brain Injury
After a stroke or traumatic brain injury, patients will have to undergo intense rehabilitative therapy to regain what they have lost. Based on a study conducted by researchers at the University of California, San Diego, it was found that longer, more intense rehab may produce even better results. Recently, many studies have documented the ability of the adult central nervous system to recover after injury. “This has implications for medical practice and medical insurance,” said senior study author Mark Tuszynski, MD, PhD, professor in the Department of Neurosciences and director of the Center for Neural Repair at UC San Diego School of Medicine, and a neurologist with the VA San Diego Healthcare System. “Typically, insurance supports brief periods of rehab to teach people to get good enough to go home. These findings suggest that if insurance would pay for longer and more intensive rehab, patients might actually recover more function.” To read more, click here.
