Treatment Involved with a Brain Injury
Help from Our San Jose Brain Injury Lawyer
Despite many advances in modern medicine, the medical community still does
not have a good understanding of brain injuries. Therefore, brain injury
treatment is complicated. Unlike other types of injuries, broken bones
or lacerations for instance, treatment for brain injuries may span several
months or even a lifetime. There are no easy fixes for brain injuries
that may occur due to attacks,
car accidents, and slips and falls. However, treatment options do exist.

In the short term, treatment for brain injuries and other locales involves
determining the nature and the consequences of the injury that medical
professionals will need to address. Surgery may also occur shortly after
a traumatic brain injury takes place.
After the initial surgeries and treatment, the recovery process is usually
far from over. Treatment will often be long-term and may take place in
the injured party's home or a long-term care facility. Other types
of treatments that may be necessary to address the physical, emotional,
and mental effects of a
traumatic brain injury include these:
- Physical therapy for physical impairments and loss of motor skills
- Occupational therapy to help injured individuals perform tasks associated
with daily living and possibly return to the work force
- Prescription drugs to help control seizures and treat mental problems that
can occur due to a traumatic brain injury
- Therapy to deal with the feelings of anger and grief that may occur after
a brain injury
- Additional surgeries
- Placement in a long-term care facility if injured individuals are no longer
capable of looking after themselves
