Fluctuating leg pain...why might this be happening? And is there anything one can do to prevent this?

My husband suffered a TBI from a fall four years ago. In the morning he has no pain in his legs but by 1 or 2 in the afternoon he experiences pain in his legs below the knees which reduces his ability to walk.

My son is almost 4 years out from TBI...what can we do to help him? Can he still be eligible for inpatient rehab?

He wants to walk but has balance issues that prevent him from walking. He also can't use his right arm or hand. Seems like nothing has worked so far.
