We like to see people at least once a year.  Now if there are complications, and they’ve had some changes, recent changes, some physicians and therapists will like to see them within six months of those changes.  Whether it be a regression or a progression, meaning new movement.  But most often, a year is probably fine.  Some people that live maybe farther away from where they’re going for their check up, may do two or three.   Everything’s fine, there’s been no new changes, I’m feeling great, no symptoms, haven’t had many infections or no infections, then, yeah, 2-3 years is fine.  But to know what’s going on with spinal cord research, also to see what’s new, and what they may be doing differently than they used to when you in rehab, I think it’s nice to check in once in a while.
