About Brain Injury Rehab
The effects of a brain injury depend on the location of the injury and the extent of damage. For example, some falls result in bruises or lacerations (cuts) to the scalp or short-lived headaches, without causing any significant brain injury.
A period of unconsciousness following an accident – even for only a few hours – is generally a signal that significant brain injury has occurred. Such injuries may result in long-term disability and quite possibly permanent changes.
If your loved one has sustained a brain injury and needs rehabilitation, chances are you're looking to learn everything you can regarding the changes he or she are experiencing and what those changes will mean for every day life.
