About Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury is unlike any other bodily injury, and they heal unlike any other injury. Since your brain defines who you are, a brain injury can affect all aspects of your life, including your personality. No two brain injuries are alike and at Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation we have the experience to help you and your family through this life-changing event.
Our Approach to Outpatient Treatment
Following inpatient rehabilitation, you may require continued treatment for a traumatic brain injury. After you leave the hospital, one of our outpatient therapy centers or our Day Neuro locations may help in your transition to independence and community re-entry. As part of our continuum of care, we can continue to support your recovery as long as necessary following your hospital stay. We have experienced outpatient therapists who specialize in treating brain injuries and will provide continued quality care as you recover. Our Day Neuro Program offers patients longer and more frequent therapy sessions over the course of several days or weeks. This program consists of a dedicated team of interdisciplinary therapists certified in treating brain injuries and other neurological conditions.
