Brain Injury Rehabilitation
The Brain Injury Association of America reports that more than 2.4 million adults and children sustain a traumatic brain injury, and over 795,000 experience a non-traumatic brain injury each year. These injuries impact the way patients speak, think and move. Studies show that proper treatment and rehabilitation at a brain injury facility makes a significant difference in a patient’s brain injury rehabilitation.
