Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is different from any other medical condition; once certain areas of your brain are damaged, they may never return to their pre-injury state of functionality. Also, because every brain injury affects different areas of the brain with varying levels of severity, your rehabilitation program must be uniquely designed to match your brain’s functional strengths and weaknesses.
There are two main goals for brain injury recovery:
- Restoring the brain functions that are capable of being restored
- Finding new ways of doing things when functions can’t be restored
The most rapid brain injury recovery generally occurs within the first 18 to 24 months. However, the rehabilitation process tends to have a “one step forward, one step back” pattern; there is rarely a straight line of progress. A long period of no improvement may come right before a period of significant improvement. Recovery from TBI is ultimately a long-term process that often requires continuous therapy for the rest of a person’s life.
