Answer

Rehabilitation with physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy should be considered, depending on the neurologic impairment. The extent of therapy can range from bedside treatment to full, comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation. The latter would include physical, occupational, speech, and cognitive therapy. The condition of the patient, including active comorbidities, dictates his or her involvement in rehabilitation therapy.
