Post-acute brain injury rehabilitation was initially developed in the early 20th century by some of the most brilliant thinkers in medicine and psychology. Remarkably, the pioneers in post-acute rehabilitation had such insights and vision that their work remains the bases for brain injury treatment a century later. Stimulated by the effects of wars and impeded at times by social and political forces, the field draws intensely caring professionals, and techniques continue to be refined and innovations put into practice.
