    this just stanches the loss.

      But medical attention can save the patient and rehab can eventually get full function back if the patient does the physical therapy.

      •  physical therapy? (0+ / 0-)

        with private health insurance?  You've got to be kidding me. :-)

        •  My private health insurance covers it (0+ / 0-)

          shrug

          Seems like the sort of thing that should be in the minimum coverage plan, at least at some level.  Everybody needs at least minimal guidance on how to come back from an injury.  Failing to do so can turn a simple recovery into a permanent limp or other loss of function.

            My mother had hip replacement surgery; her insurance paid for a week in what we referred to as a "stroke warehouse" -- basically a place where octogenarians were sent to die.  She got two fifteen-minute physical therapy sessions in one week.  

            We took her out, and she paid for real therapy out of pocket.
