"When the patient goes home, the focus is still on primary things. Then, as people are settling into their routine, that's where [the problems] seem to be popping up."

"You find [multi-disciplinary teams] in certain rehabilitation hospitals or centers, and yet even then you're getting a neurologist, a psychologist, a speech pathologist -- but you don't necessarily have a sex therapist."

Podell said most studies reviewed in the research included only those with moderate an
