Disorders of Consciousness: Effects on Mind and Body
Brain injury can affect a person physically, emotionally, the way a person thinks (cognition), and the way a person acts (behavior).
Some of the challenges your treatment team will be looking at:
|Bladder and Bowel|
|Sleep and Fatigue|
|Splinting and Bracing|
Other problems may arise that are not listed above. Some problems affect many people while others seldom occur. Each person and each brain injury is different.
Types of problems, as well as length and amount of recovery, vary considerably from person to person depending on the location, type and extent of injury.
