Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) affects more than 1.5 million Americans each year. However, no two injuries are alike, nor do they create the same challenges for patients and their families. At Riverside Rehabilitation Hospital, patients benefit from a program tailored to meet their unique physical and/or functional limitations, cognitive impairments, and emotional or behavioral difficulties. We deliver an integrated and intensive brain injury rehabilitation program, including medical, nursing, and therapy care, to address the complex needs of each patient. We provide the earliest possible start to brain injury rehabilitation to help optimize the recovery at every level of injury. Our brain injury program offers patients a safe environment to heal as they reach their goals on the road to recovery.

    Our goal-directed approach helps brain injury patients to:

    • Maximize alertness and responsiveness.
    • Develop new cognitive and behavioral strategies to compensate for any deficits.
    • Improve physical function and mobility to enhance the skills needed to perform daily activities.
    • Overcome the psychological and social problems that occasionally interfere with adjusting to an independent life at home, work, and/or in the community.
