Full Synopsis
Make the fullest possible recovery after neurological injury with this definitive guide

After an accident that left him permanently paralyzed over ten years ago, Dr. Bradford Berk made it his mission to help others recover from acute neurological injury (ANI). As the founder and director of the University of Rochester Neurorestoration Institute, he brings his abundant experience in working with patients and making his own ongoing recovery to Getting Your Brain and Body Back, the most up-to-date guide for survivors of spinal cord injury (SCI), stroke, and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Each of these acute neurological injuries can result in similar physical and psychological challenges and require similar treatments, medications, and assistive devices. Getting Your Brain and Body Back offers comprehensive, reassuring guidance for your every concern: how to deal with grief and trauma in the aftermath of accident or injury—and build resilience as you find your way forward; what adaptive devices—for bathing, dining, mobility, and more—will help you enjoy life to the utmost; how to prevent and treat secondary health problems of every kind, such as heart, skin, and bladder troubles—sexual health included!; and therapeutic approaches from both Western and Eastern medicine to consider for maximum healing and pain relief.
