This study confirms earlier research that an exercise program is feasible and effective for people with traumatic brain injury. Aerobic exercise led to improved mood, cardiovascular fitness, and increased self-esteem. Study participants reported high satisfaction with the program and no unfavorable effects. Future research is needed to determine the intensity, frequency, and duration required to reach and maintain improvement.
