Since holding a press conference last week, no other word has come out of Bret Michaels' camp. However, the Poison frontman and solo artist has reportedly been released from the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona and is undergoing physical rehabilitation.

The Associated Press reports that Dr. Joseph Zabramski "said he recommended that Michaels wait at least four to six weeks before resuming normal activity. He declined to say when Michaels could resume touring. Doctors will examine Michaels every two weeks until he's recovered.

"Zabramski said Michaels is fully conscious and aware and talking fine, but he has back spasms and headaches when he tries to walk. He could continue getting back pain and headaches, but Zabramski doesn't expect any other long-term effects. He wouldn't say when Michaels was released or whether he was sent home or to a rehabilitation facility.

"The 47-year-old contestant on "The Celebrity Apprentice" is receiving therapy and will probably continue to suffer from severe pain for another seven to 10 days as blood pooled under his brain dissolves. Michaels is a Type 1 diabetic, which limits the available options to ease discomfort."
