Treatments for Serious Brain Injuries

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.

Short-Term Care

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.

Long-Term Care

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

Treatment for brain injuries often places an intense emotional and financial strain on injured individuals and family members. Not only can medical expenses add up quickly, but the victim may have to be off work for an extended period.
