Recovering from a traumatic brain injury can be life-changing, and physical therapy can be an effective treatment option. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs when the brain is injured, and its function is altered. Blows to the head can cause falls or car accidents and may initially be diagnosed as a concussion. Changes in behavior or physical function may indicate that a TBI has occurred, and it’s not just athletes or military personnel who are at risk. Even young children can suffer from head injuries during play or abuse.
The symptoms of TBI depend on the location and severity of the injury, including memory loss, vision or hearing problems, and difficulty with balance or problem-solving. Behavioral and emotional changes may also occur, and the person with TBI may not be aware of these changes. Rehabilitation measures can help with restoring physical function and preventing further injury. Our physical therapist will work with you and your loved ones to provide support throughout the treatment process.
