Trauma and Rehabilitation
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. TBI may also cause Spinal Cord Injury. TBI is the insult to the brain caused by trauma to the head (head injury). Acquired injuries of the brain can be due to conditions like encephalitis, meningitis, brain tumors, etc., and they are not hereditary or congenital. Mild Traumatic Brain Injury causes symptoms like Headache, Fatigue, Sleep disturbance, decreased concentration, decreased speed of thinking, Memory problems, Depression and anxiety and Emotional mood swings. Severe Brain Injury causes a prolonged unconscious state like Coma, Vegetative State and Locked-in Syndrome. Neurological disorders such as dementias, Parkinson's and tumours and neurological events such as traumatic brain injuries and strokes can be treated by neuro rehabilitation. After the treatment for a brain injury, neuro rehabilitation steps help the patient recover, maximise their functional and cognitive abilities and to help them realise their personal goals and build self-esteem.
