Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program
The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program is a comprehensive interdisciplinary program for those with post-acute traumatic brain injury or other acquired neurocognitive impairments.
The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program provides comprehensive interdisciplinary outpatient treatment for mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other neurological trauma or disease. We treat those who have had a TBI on the job, in a motor vehicle accident, in sports activities or from other physical trauma, or those with other acquired neurocognitive deficits.
Goals of treatment include improvement of cognitive skills, development of compensatory skills for permanent neurocognitive deficits, development of psychological coping skills to improve emotional and social adjustment, and restoration of functional activities including home, leisure and recreational activities, and return to work.
Common problems after TBI
Following even a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI), it is not uncommon to experience persistent problems with attention, concentration, memory, problem solving and other cognitive difficulties. Individuals may experience headaches, dizziness, sensitivity to noise or light, vision problems and difficulty sleeping. Emotional changes such as irritability, depression and anxiety are common. With all of these problems it is often extremely difficult to return to any semblance of a normal lifestyle.
Our Rehabilitation Team
The interdisciplinary treatment team includes a rehabilitation physician, neuropsychologist, pain psychologist, speech language pathologist, physical therapist, occupational therapist and vocational rehabilitation counselor.
All of the practitioners in our program are Certified Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS) awarded by the Brain Injury Association of America.
We offer individuals with brain injury a continuum of outpatient care to help with successful transition to home, work or school, or in the community. Our services aim to improve physical health and fitness, psychological well-being, coping and compensatory strategies, social and leisure activities and capacity for returning to work and/or to other functional activities.
