    New injury questions

    My name is Kelli, and my fiance was in a car accident on 9/21/2007. He recieved a hairline fracture of his C2. They ruled it an incomplete injury. He needed no surgery, only a Philadelphia collar. It has been almost 5 months, and we are not seeing much movement. He also had a brain injury, which he has very good cognitive function, and communication, but he cannot talk at this time. My question is.....Could the loss of movement be due to the brain injury? His spinal cord was compressed, but it is in good shape. I guess I just don't understand why I am not seeing any improvement. He is currently at Rehab Institute of Chicago, IL. Anyone with some info on incomplete injuries would be greatly appreciated.
