TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY REHABILITATION
No two traumatic brain injuries (“TBI”) are similar and neither are the challenges faced by the patient and family members. A person with brain injury not only experiences physical and functional limitations but may have cognitive and emotional difficulties. Research has shown that where a person seeks treatment makes all the difference in their recovery.
WHAT IS TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY REHABILITATION?
At ReGen Rehab, our patients benefit from a highly specialized programmeme involving rehabilitation physicians, neuropsychiatrists and psychologists, therapists and rehabilitation nurses tailored to the physical / functional / cognitive impairments, and emotional or behavioral impairments unique to each patient.
The overall goal of rehabilitation after a TBI is to improve your ability to function at home and in society. Therapists help you adapt to disabilities or changes in the living space, called “Environmental Modification”, to make your everyday activities easier. Overtime, your rehab programmeme will probably change with your needs and abilities.
Our goal-directed approach helps you to :
Maximize brain arousal and responsiveness
Develop new cognitive and behavioral strategies to compensate for any deficits
Improve physical function and mobility, as well as skills needed to perform daily activities
Multiple therapy modalities performed during the programme supports you in achieving these goals. For example, occupational therapy plays an important role in cognitive therapy, focusing on concentration and memory while physiotherapy aides in mobility.
As part of our TBI rehab programme, we offer a Post-coma Rehabilitation programme for individuals in a vegetative or minimally conscious state. The programme combines medical care, pharmacological management and therapy interventions to maximize each person’s potential.
Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (TDCS) is part of our non-invasive brain stimulation programme at ReGen Rehab, one of the few programmes of its kind in Malaysia run by recognised experts in neurorehabilitation.
Brain stimulation has shown beneficial effects on fine motor movements, balance and coordination. The treatment is best combined with a structured rehabilitation programme. TDCS is painlesss, safe, has minimal side effects, and has been used in thousands of people worldwide. It aims to improve the quality of life and reduce the effects of post-stroke impairments.
