Brain Injury & Rehabilitation
Brain injuries, resulting from a blow or jolt to the head or body, can cause a variety of physical, cognitive, and emotional effects – both short and long term.
Rehabilitation can help reduce symptoms so individuals can regain function and return home with as much independence as possible. The sooner rehabilitation is started following an injury, the better the chance of recovery.
Potential issues that can be addressed through rehabilitation treatments include:
- Alertness levels
- Memory and attention issues
- Reasoning and problem-solving struggles
- Mobility issues
- Fine motor skills
- Mood changes
- Impulsiveness and agitation
- Eating and swallowing issues
- Medical complications
The length and duration of your rehabilitation treatment will depend upon the severity of your injury and the responsiveness to treatments such as physical, occupational, and speech therapies.
