Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation

About Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation

The effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) collide with every part of a patient’s life. Those effects can last a lifetime, and requires specialized care to maximize recovery. A TBI 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 we have the experience to help you and your family through this life-changing event. Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation's full Continuum of Care enables us to meet the needs of our patients at every level to maximize physical, cognitive and functional independence. This includes inpatient rehab, outpatient therapy, out Day Neuro Program, home health and support group services. While not all patients will need every level of care, all patients have access to a diverse array of treatment options.

If you or a loved one has a traumatic injury or illness, you need far more than just physical rehabilitation. Psychological and social adjustments are just as critical. Choosing the right rehabilitation facility can make the world of difference.

Our Approach To Brain Injury Rehabilitation

Our brain injury program targets a patient's physical and functional limitations, cognitive deficits and any behavioral, emotional or interpersonal difficulties. In a supportive, patient-centered environment, we manage each patient's complex challenges and tailor treatment to individual medical, physical, cognitive and emotional needs. Patients receive a minimum of three hours of therapy a day, on both an individual and group basis. One-on-one therapy focuses on individual skills, while group therapy will allow patients facing similar challenges to work together. Our brain injury rehabilitation teams are led by board-certified physiatrists (medical doctors specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation) and include rehabilitation therapists, nurses and various medical professionals with the expertise, experience and care that you and your family deserve.

The Best Father's Day Gift

A motorcycle crash left Joshua Bennett with a traumatic brain injury, broken bones and internal injuries. After the crash, the prognosis of Joshua ever coming out of his coma wasn't good, but on Mother's Day he opened his eyes for the first time following the crash. After leaving the hospital, Joshua started rehabilitation at Baylor Scott & White Rehab – Fort Worth. After a few weeks of intensive physical, occupational and speech therapy, Joshua was able to regain movement in his right side and regain his memory and speech. By Father's Day, Joshua was able to discharge just in time to spend the weekend with his daughter and his own father.
