Brain Injury Rehabilitation: Ask the Expert

Sort by: A-Z | Z-A | Newest | Oldest

A brain injury can affect just about everything -- including the way you walk, talk, and think. That's why there are a number of treatments available that attempt to restore the parts of life that have been affected by a brain injury. The term "brain injury rehabilitation" refers to the many different kinds of specialized supports and services that are offered following the emergency and early phases of brain injury treatment.

Some brain injury rehabilitation is offered as a program within a hospital or other clinical setting; other types of brain injury rehabilitation might occur on an outpatient basis. While most everyone benefits from rehabilitation following a brain injury, the specific type of rehabilitation depends on the unique needs of the person and the challenges they face.
