Brain injury rehabilitation
Achieving the best outcomes for patients affected by brain injury requires an integrated team of medical and rehabilitation specialists. At the Northwell Health Rehabilitation Network, we are dedicated to helping our patients return their homes, community, school and work.
Our experienced team of professionals is here to ensure you don't face this journey alone. We offer treatment for a variety of conditions, including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Brain injury related to oxygen deprivation
- Brain tumors
- Brain injury accompanying spinal cord injury
A team approach for personalized care
Every patient's challenge is unique, so we work together to set goals that fit your special needs, ensuring your comfort and successful rehabilitation. Your team members may include a Physiatrist, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, neuropsychologists and recreational therapists.
The brain injury rehabilitation program places special emphasis on preparing patients to re-enter their communities safely and to take the next steps in rehabilitation. Patients learn strategies to make the most of their gains and to compensate for reduced or lost abilities. Providing family support and teaching families supportive skills are priorities.
