Brain Injury Rehabilitation

A brain injury can affect just about everything — including the way a person walks, talks, and thinks. For service members and veterans who have been in combat, these symptoms can be compounded by other physical injuries or post-traumatic stress disorder. The length of the rehabilitation process varies according to the person and to the severity of their injury. Some people may only require a few weeks or months of rehabilitation, and others may require years or even lifelong rehabilitation. Treatments range from critical hospital care to speech and language therapy.
