About Brain Injuries
Brain injury is damage that results from traumatic or non-traumatic forces to the brain. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) results in bruising, torn tissue, bleeding and other damage that follows an impact to the head from a blow, a fall, being shaken, being shot or other external trauma. Non-traumatic brain injury occurs from internal causes such as infections (meningitis, encephalitis) anoxia or oxygen deprivation (choking, near-drowning, or cardiac arrest), toxic exposures, brain tumors, hydrocephalus or stroke.
The brain is very complex, and brain injury affects each person differently. Therapy Achievement’s Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program provides a comprehensive team of expert rehabilitation therapists to help you navigate the path to recovery following brain injury:
