Brain Injury Rehab

Is a comprehensive and individualized process that focuses on helping individuals recover and regain function. The rehabilitation team required depends on the type, severity, and location of the injury, as well as the individual's overall health and pre-injury capabilities.

Brain Injury Rehab

Our goal at Neuro Clinic of Idaho is to provide each individual with a team to best address the patient's needs to successfully achieve a full rehabilitation process. With our knowledge and expertise we will also provide recommendations to the best of our ability to support all needs for areas we currently do not offer to continue enhancing the patient's overall health. 


Here are key components of brain injury rehabilitation:


Multidisciplinary Team: Similar to stroke rehabilitation, brain injury rehabilitation often involves a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals. This team may include physiatrists, neurologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, neuropsychologists, and social workers.


Occupational Therapy (OT): Occupational therapists focus on helping individuals regain skills necessary for daily living, such as self-care, cooking, driving, working, and leisure activities. They address cognitive, perceptual, and motor deficits to improve independence with enhancing use of the pelvic, trunk, arm, hand, leg and foot. 


Physical Therapy (PT): Physical therapists work with stroke survivors to improve mobility, strength, balance and coordination. Exercises and activities may focus on improving balance, walking, and overall functional mobility. Rehabilitation exercises aim to enhance overall physical function and reduce impairments resulting from a brain injury.


Speech Therapy (ST): Speech-language pathologists (SLP) assist with functional cognition including executive functioning, initiation, sequencing, organizing, attention to task, medication management, money management, and emotional regulation.  SLP also assists with communication difficulties, including speech, language, and swallowing issues that may arise due to a brain injury.


Neuropsychological:  Neuropsychologists help individuals with cognitive and emotional challenges resulting from a brain injury. This may involve cognitive rehabilitation to address memory, attention, and problem-solving skills, as well as emotional support, coping strategies, return to work and driving.


Recreational Therapy: Enhances community reintegration using activities such as art, music, or recreational activities that can provide enjoyment and also contribute to overall rehabilitation by engaging different parts of the brain and improving mood.


Family Education and Support: Educating and involving family members in the rehabilitation process is essential. Families can provide emotional support and assist with the individual's ongoing care and recovery.


Long-Term Management: Brain injury rehabilitation is often a long-term process, and ongoing support may be necessary. This can include periodic evaluations, adjustments to the rehabilitation plan, and addressing any new challenges that arise.


Home Modifications and Adaptive Living Skills: Depending on the severity of the brain injury, modifications to the home environment and teaching adaptive living skills may be necessary to promote safety and independence.
