What is rehabilitation after a brain injury?

Brain injuries can affect various systems of the victim's body. This means that rehabilitation for brain injuries has to be tailored to meet each victim's specific needs. There are several different types of rehabilitation programs that can be utilized for a person with a brain injury, so it is vital that each victim get the services he or she needs to live the fullest life possible.

What are some of the most common rehabilitation types for people with brain injuries?

Physical therapy, speech therapy, cognitive therapy, vocational rehabilitation and neurobehavioral therapy are often used for people with a brain injury. Occupational therapy and neuropsychological testing are often useful. Some less common forms of therapy after a brain injury include hyperbaric oxygen treatment, craniosacral therapy, meditation, mindfulness and biofield therapies.

What is the goal of rehab for a brain injury victim?

The ultimate goal for rehab is to enable the person to learn to live a full life after the brain injury. Suffering from a brain injury can make tasks that were once simple very complex. By going through rehab, the person can learn techniques to perform some tasks and methods to cope when he or she can't do a task. Most brain injury rehab programs treat the whole person instead of focusing on just the brain injury.

As you can imagine, brain injury rehab can be costly. While insurance might help to defray some costs, it might not cover them all. On top of the expense of rehab, the patient is often left without an income. Seeking compensation might help brain injury victims to avoid financial ruin when they are only trying to get the care they need for their injury.
