Brain Injury

Brain Injury Rehabilitation

A brain injury is any disruption to the brain's normal functions. Brain injuries are often caused by trauma, such as sports-related damage or car accidents. They can also be non-traumatic, resulting from an illness, brain tumor or infection. Brain injury rehabilitation seeks to maximize a patient's functional abilities so they can return to the highest level of independence possible. 

While brain injury impacts each person differently, our Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program at Post Acute Medical offers comprehensive services, a multidisciplinary rehab team and a personalized approach to help you recover from brain injury.

How Can a Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program Help You?

Our Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program aims to help patients recover from brain injuries as quickly and effectively as possible. Some people struggle with permanent changes in their abilities. Others have to relearn how to perform daily activities independently and safely. Rehabilitation uses individualized therapies and resources that assist the brain's relearning process. 

Our Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program can help:

 

  • Address the physical, mental, and emotional difficulties caused by brain injury.
  • Improve your ability to function at home and in your community.
  • Help you adapt to the changes caused by brain injury.
  • Provide social and emotional support.
  • Prevent further medical complications of brain injury.

 

Our Specialized Approach to Brain Injury Rehab

Brain injury can impact multiple aspects of a person's life, from memory loss and behavioral changes to physical impairment. Our comprehensive Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program at Post Acute Medical works to help patients regain as many daily living activities as possible, such as speaking, walking, eating and dressing — whatever the individual needs may be. 

Inpatient Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation 

Inpatient rehabilitation after a traumatic or non-traumatic brain injury tends to be more intensive. Patients live full-time in our center as our team works with them to help them become as independent as possible. Most of the individuals under our care undergo about six hours of therapy per day, or as much as they can tolerate. 

Outpatient Brain Injury Rehab

Patients whose injuries were not severe enough to require hospitalization may prefer outpatient brain injury rehabilitation. This arrangement involves a structured therapeutic program during the day that allows patients to return home at night. Outpatient rehab is also useful for those who want to maintain or enhance their recovery once they have completed inpatient rehabilitation. 

Your Individualized Treatment Plan and Resources

Every person's needs and abilities after a brain injury are different. The team at PAM Health designs a program for each patient.  The treatment plan will involve multiple healthcare specialists under the direction of a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician who'll oversee care.

Our Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program focuses on improving function in mobility, daily living, mental and emotional adjustment, and being a part of the community.  Individualized brain injury treatment plans will likely include:

 

  • Medical care provided by specially trained physicians
  • Consultations with our on-staff neurologist
  • Occupational, physical, and speech therapy administered by licensed clinicians
  • Psychological services
  • Advanced rehabilitation technologies
  • Dietary counseling
  • Medication management through our in-house pharmacy
  • “Quiet gym” space for low stimulation physical therapy
  • Patient and family education and counseling

At the end of the program, we also provide post-discharge services including complete outpatient therapy and support groups for individuals and families whose lives have been impacted by brain injury.

 

Your Treatment Team

Our team of physicians, registered nurses, occupational and physical therapists, speech pathologists, and other specialists are highly trained in brain injury rehabilitation. Each specialist is directed by a physiatrist who looks after individual needs and ensures consistent care. 

Having a group of dedicated healthcare professionals on-site means we can address unique needs and promote a more effective recovery.
