With most traumatic brain injuries, it is usually evident to the patient or family members. But what about more minor brain injuries (such as a minor stroke) where it’s not immediately apparent that a brain injury has taken place? In other words, is it possible to have a traumatic brain injury without knowing it?
Even minor brain injuries may require post-acute rehabilitation in order to return the patient to their pre-injury condition. Staff can work with patients through therapy to help patients reduce symptoms and to return to activities of daily living without disruption.
It’s essential to have a good understanding of brain injuries, symptoms, and recovery so you can support your loved one through the process of healing.
