Traumatic Brain Injury

cognitive rehabilitation for traumatic brain injury

What Is It?

Traumatic brain injury occurs when a blunt force is applied to the head. People may experience a traumatic brain injury as a result of a fall, sports injury, violence, motor vehicle, or workplace accident. Traumatic brain injuries can be penetrating or non-penetrating, depending on if an object makes contact with the brain tissue. When a force is applied to someone’s head, the brain tissue makes contact with the skull, thus disrupting neural connections which affect brain activity. Traumatic brain injuries often result in cognitive, psychological, and physical challenges causing someone with a traumatic brain injury to need therapeutic services for rehabilitation.

What Can Be Done for Traumatic Brain Injury Patients?

People with traumatic brain injury typically have cognitive deficits in the domains of executive functioning, attention, language, and memory. These cognitive deficits result in survivors of traumatic brain injury making impulsive decisions, having trouble inhibiting actions, not being able to focus during work or school, becoming forgetful of appointments, and having difficulty expressing themselves verbally. In turn, these cognitive deficits may cause someone with a traumatic brain injury to experience depression, anxiety, irritability, and isolation. Thus, many people with traumatic brain injury undergo cognitive rehabilitation therapy with an occupational therapist, speech therapist, psychologist, or other clinical provider.
