What is the timeline to regain function?

There are no fixed deadlines or specific timeframes. The timeline for regaining function varies widely from person to person and depends on the nature of the injury. Recovery is a highly individualised journey, and it’s only when someone begins to regain function that we can be certain of their progress. In essence, recovery is an ongoing, lifelong process that only comes to a stop when you decide to stop trying for improvement.
