Environmental Resources for Persons with TBI in Rural Area: Issues in Accessibility
Abstract: New paradigms of disability suggest that many variables interact to influence the community functioning of persons with traumatic brain injury (TBI), including injury severity, social, psychological, and environmental factors. Unfortunately, the majority of TBI outcome research to date has primarily focused on injury severity variables (e.g., neuroradiologic findings, loss of consciousness, post traumatic amnesia) to the exclusion of environmental variables. Limited availability of environmental resources such as rehabilitation professionals, facilities, and services may be significant barriers that affect outcome for persons with TBI, and particularly for those in rural areas. Using Missouri as an example of a rural state (i.e., 31.92%... more

Serial Casting Versus Ultrasound with Weight Bearing for the Treatment of Equinovarus Contractures in the Individual with Acute TBI: Comparison of Efficacy and Cost
Abstract: Plantar flexion contractures are a common complication of TBI. Multiple treatment methods are available for increasing joint range of motion (ROM). Serial casting and ultrasound combined with a static stretch are two conservative methods of treatment for plantar flexion contractures known to increase dorsiflexion ROM. However, studies have not compared the effectiveness and cost of serial casting versus ultrasound/static stretch in increasing dorsiflexion ROM. This is a randomized, controlled study comparing the efficacy and cost associated with these two methods... more
