Brain Injury Rehabilitation
If you have had a brain injury, rehabilitation will be an important part of your recovery. Rehabilitation can take many forms depending on your needs. Rehabilitation programmes can include physical, occupational, speech therapy, as well as psychiatric care and social support. These therapies will help you overcome the effects of your injury as much as possible.
Rehabilitation is designed to help the brain learn alternative ways of working to minimise the long-term impact of the injury. Rehabilitation also helps the patient and their family to cope with any remaining disabilities.
