Traumatic Brain Injury

 

Traumatic brain injury is usually caused by a blow or other traumatic injury to the head or body. The degree of damage can depend on several factors, including the nature of the injury and the force of impact.

It can have wide-ranging physical and psychological effects. Some signs or symptoms may appear immediately after the traumatic event, while others may appear days or weeks later. Many people who have had a significant brain injury will experience changes in their cognitive skills. 

Traumatic brain injury can result in problems with a person’s  attention and concentration,learning,memory,reasoning,judgment, communication, executive functions etc. People also experience behavioural changes.

Collaborative treatment plan is very important in this condition. Cognitive retraining and physiological rehabilitation helps to restore the functioning slowly and gradually in most cases.
