    No longer can we falsely assume that brain injury survivors can recover only for a certain period or that they are destined to regain only a limited number of skills. The potential for improvement is far greater than previously believed possible. With the right interventions, TBI survivors can continue to make progress repairing their brain’s health and their lives for many years. That knowledge should significantly change the way we think about–and address–this enormous public health challenge

    1. Most definitely! I had a “old stroke” recently that hadn’t walked in 3 years. Well, by golly by the end of our time together, she was making her first steps and I referred her on to outpatient therapy services. I like to tell my patients that the research states that the biggest gains happen in the first year (mostly because there are few to no studies beyond that first year), but gains and changes can be made throughout the life time, just like anyone else!

      1. That is a great point – the lack of studies over the long term totally skews the results. Hopefully, so much artificially induced suffering can end… before too terribly long.
