Major multiple trauma, usually from car accidents, may leave a patient with a wide range of symptoms depending on the type of trauma.
The team at Rehab Medicine of the Carolinas is prepared to treat and restore patients following traumatic injuries. We work in conjunction with the trauma and/or surgical team to provide comprehensive and integrated care so that patients can have optimal function and quality of life.
It is imperative to continue treatment following hospital discharge so that impairments and symptoms may be appropriately addressed.
Sometimes, feeding tubes and tracheostomy tubes are needed for a period following trauma. Proper care and follow-up of these devices are crucial.
