Answer

Answer

Patients should follow up with the primary care provider, neurologist, and other specialists, including the physiatrist, and continue with the outpatient rehabilitation program. The patient requires continued reassessment of various factors (eg, functional gains, psychological status, mood, the need for further equipment, home and other modifications, skin care, bowel and bladder function, spasticity management, pain, vocational needs, and social issues).
