Because brain injuries are so complex, there are several myths out there about the rehabilitation process. One of the most common myths is that all possible recovery will happen within the first year of rehab. This is simply untrue.
Research shows that the length of brain injury improvement depends on the extent of any given injury: the more severe it is, the more slowly you will recover. Many TBI victims continue to see improvement for years beyond their initial recovery period.
Another myth involves the idea of a “recovery plateau” – in other words, a point in time when you show no further improvement. When your rate of progress first starts to decrease, some brain injury therapists will terminate their services, believing you have stopped improving and there is no need to continue rehab.
While the most dramatic recovery progress does take place in the early stages of TBI rehab, the idea of a recovery plateau is faulty. Any improvement following your TBI will happen in fits and starts, and may often be interrupted by periods of little to no change – even regression.
Many so-called “plateaus” in the recovery process come just before a series of new increases in brain function. It is much more accurate to view brain injury rehabilitation as a long-term process that can show new developments at any time.
