Traumatic brain injury in children
Neurological rehabilitation of Traumatic brain injury in children
Childhood traumatic brain injury constitutes the first disability in children older than 1 year in developed countries.
The reason is always related to a strong blow to the head that produces a primary injury resulting from the impact on the skull. There may also be a secondary complication (edema or cerebral haemorrhage, increased intracranial pressure…) that may develop hours or days after suffering the stroke and that may aggravate the initial condition.
Neurological rehabilitation is a key treatment for the recovery of motor, cognitive, behavioral and social disorders that occur as a result of the injury.
How does Neural help in the recovery of a child who has suffered a brain injury?
We identify the difficulties that exist after the injury, and as a team we help the child or adolescent and his family to:
- Work on behaviour if the behaviour is more impulsive than before.
- Improve the ability to concentrate and memory.
- Increase and improve mobility, postural control, ambulation and muscle tone.
- Rate use of support products (orthosis) botulinum toxin.
- Evaluate and train possible speech disorders (aphasia).
- Promote independence in daily activities (personal hygiene, transfers, staying alone at home).
In more advanced phases, we help the patient to:
- Meet up with your school environment.
- Improve living with your family and friends.
- Gain independence (personal grooming, travel …).
- Increase self confidence and resolve personal conflicts.
