We are a partner on your journey, helping you each step of the way

Traumatic Brain Injury

A brain injury is a life-altering experience and a major cause of death and disability in the United States. A brain injury can cause a number of residual complications, sometimes symptoms you might not even expect. That is why we develop all-encompassing treatment plans to help you navigate life after the event.

The benefit of care coordination

All care plans are developed and overseen by one of our board-certified Physiatrists with a subspecialty in Brain Injury Medicine. Our Physiatrist is in constant communication with experts in other disciplines so all of your post brain injury care is integrated effectively. We may refer you to one of our trusted partners for some aspects of your care plan, including speech therapy, physical therapy and occupational therapy. Our care plan aims to improve your quality of life after a brain injury. Many of our patients who remain committed to their program are able to return to work and/or driving.

What challenges will be addressed at an appointment?

A brain injury may dramatically impact nearly every aspect of your life. Activities that once were routine may now be difficult, but we are here to help guide you along your journey to recovery.
