Abstract: In this review, Teasell et al. identify effective rehabilitation and treatment interventions while providing an accessible and evidence based tool for clinicians. Included articles ranged from 1980 to 2005. Inclusion criteria dictated that studies must include any rehabilitation intervention post Acquired brain injury (ABI) and measure outcomes during the recovery period. The Physiotherapy Evidence Database  (PEDro) rating scale and the Downs and Black were used to assess methodological quality. There were a total of 13640 reference titles that met these criteria. Of those, 1312 abstracts were selected, resulting in 303 analyzed articles. The authors conclude that many interventions lack supporting quality evidence, specifically randomized controlled trials (RCTs).
