In brief: Brain Injury

Rehabilitation after a traumatic brain injury depends on the deficit.
However, a multi-discipline approach with physical, occupational and speech therapy is needed. The treatment depends on the injury. Seek help through your primary care physician.

In brief: Lower extremity

Lower extremity range of motion exercises would be essentially to prevent contracture deformities.
If the patient is able, then active rom exercises can be added. Depending on the degree of both sensory and motor (muscles) impairment increased strength and cardiovascular exercises can be increased. If significant paralysis, the pressure relief should be added to bony areas (ie suspension boots).
