Home Rehabilitation May Help Those With Brain Injuries
Cifu believes this study has little applicability for most of the
population. And because the patients were evaluated at the beginning of therapy
and then a year later, he says, it is impossible to judge what impact the
therapy actually had.
"Measurements need to be taken immediately before and after
intervention," he says. "This study is suggestive that in the [period
immediately after a] brain injury, intensity of services does not have a great
impact on one year outcomes. The intense services may have helped them get
better more rapidly, but at a year it kind of all evens out."
