Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) & Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Acquired brain injury (ABI) is brain damage caused by events after birth, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) (e.g. physical trauma due to accidents, assaults, neurosurgery, head injury etc.) or nontraumatic injury derived from either an internal or external source (e.g. stroke, brain tumors, infection). There is no known cure for chronic neurological deficits due to acquired brain injury or traumatic brain injury. Treatments should start as soon as possible after the.
The neurological deficits can include: cognitive (e.g., memory loss and attention impairment), physical (e.g., paralysis, spasticity and muscle weakness), emotional (e.g., depression, issues with self-control, managing anger impulses and challenges with problem solving, etc.), or behavioral impairments that lead to permanent or temporary changes in functioning.
TRAINM’s goal in rehabilitation of acquired brain injury and traumatic brain injury patients is the return to normal life as much as possible by regaining and relearning the skills of everyday living. It also aims to prevent secondary complications. Our rehabilitation team is usually multidisciplinary including neurologists, physiotherapists, speech, language and cognitive therapists. Rehabilitation should be started as quickly as possible and can last anywhere from a few days to several years.Start your recovery
