So sorry to hear about your daughter..With all TBI's everyone is different..She will need time, patients, lots of rest..

Ive never changed much in 14 years....My therapists always said give it a year, then 5 years, and by the 10th you will know how its going to be. I thinks its good advise.

Did that just happen recently?
Give it some time to resolve if so.
If it doesn't resolve maybe consider upper cervical/ NUCCA, if the drs have no other ideas..

Welcome to NeuroTalk.

When a backwards fall impacts the back of the head, the doctors often overlook upper neck injuries than can last a long time. C-1 can become unstable and cause inflammation that interrupts nerve function in the body.

Discipline with head and neck posture is part of the recovery process. Some will get help from a upper cervical chiropractor or physical therapist who can help the upper cervical vertebra stabilize.

It can be a prolonged recovery as the ligaments are slow to strengthen.

btw, I don't think there is any evidence to suggest your daughter is finished recovering. Further recovery will be based on self-care with some help from specialists.

DD, The struggles you are having are common all over the world. Finding the next level of diagnostics and rehabilitation can be a challenge.

It sounds like you might need to look for a neuro rehabilitation hospital. They are not common so it might mean looking a distance from where you are.

Here is one but it appears it requires having supplemental health insurance.
Trauma rehabilitation :: The Victorian Rehabilitation Centre

[ Spinal cord injury

The Victorian Spinal Cord Service, located at Austin Health, is the primary service provider for people with a traumatic spinal cord injury.

Alfred Health is the other service provider predominantly focusing on non-traumatic spinal cord injury.

Patients with a spinal cord injury have complex high-care needs. The majority require access to specialist rehabilitation, equipment, home modifications and attendant care packages funded through an individual support package for long-term care needs.
Acquired brain injury

Acquired brain injury (ABI) encompasses a wide spectrum of brain injuries acquired from traumatic and non-traumatic causes such as road trauma, bashing, suicide attempts and strokes.

A small but significant group of patients with severe ABI's require specialist subacute services to meet their rehabilitation needs. These include intensive nursing and/or managing complex behavioural issues as well as specialist allied health services.

There are two services that care for people with moderate to severe ABI: Caulfield Hospital at Alfred Health and Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre at Austin Health. ]
