If a loved one has had a brain injury, you may have heard the term ‘intracranial pressure’. It is not uncommon after a brain injury or medical condition caused by increased pressure in the skull.
Intracranial pressure can start as a headache but is a condition that can be fatal. Other serious complications include stroke, seizures, and neurological damage. However, it is treatable, and patients can have successful outcomes.
Post-acute rehabilitation facilities are medical treatment centers aimed at healing and returning patients to the community. Before participation in therapies, patients must wait until intracranial pressure is normalized. Education on the condition is essential in order to understand how your loved one’s treatment plan is developed.
