The rehabilitation process is different for everyone, because every injury is different. 

A team will be involved: a neuropsychologist, physician, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, and possibly a social worker.

This process can be during an inpatient stay in the rehabilitation facility, on an outpatient basis where you come in during the day, or it may be done at home.

Rehabilitation works on mental abilities such as memory, reasoning, and the ability to communicate. It also works to improve physical abilities like walking and balance.
