Brain Injury Rehab

MRI digital x-ray of brain for brain injury rehab
Traumatic or non-traumatic brain injury can leave people with many different problems.

A team-based approach with a detailed care plan is often needed to help the brain injured patient recover. The team may consist of the rehab physician, rehabilitation therapists (physical, occupation, speech/cognitive) as well as other specialists such as neuropsychologists and neuro-opthalmologists.

Neuropsychological testing, brain imaging, or lab studies may be recommended to fully understand prognosis and potential outcomes.

Many times, brain injury may cause deficits with the vestibular system that may cause a feeling of imbalance and dizziness. Neck pain or headache associated with whiplash or impact injury may also occur. Physical therapy combined with pharmacologic agents may help alleviate some of these impairments.

Brain injury, whether traumatic or acquired, may also cause difficulty concentrating, memory problems, and vision changes. Occupational therapy can help with strategies to help patients safely return to normal activities in their home and community.

Speech and language pathology may be needed to help improve higher level communication and executive function skills that may been affected as a result of the injury or illness. Neuropsychology may provide additional assistance with helping to determine readiness for return to school, work, or other activities

During a clinic visit for brain injury, the patient can expect undergoing a comprehensive screening that includes gathering details regarding the injury, complete personal and family medical history, symptom checklist, and complete neurological exam.
