How Physical Therapy May Help Children With Traumatic Brain Injury


When a child suffers from traumatic brain injury (TBI), it can be a very trying experience for both the child and his or her family. Head trauma is very common in pediatric populations because toddlers are at risk for falls while adolescents are at risk for sports-related injuries. Fortunately, the medical community has conducted research on the causes, symptoms and effects of TBI, as well as the best treatment options available. After initial treatment, many of the children who experience head trauma will need the services of a physical therapist working with a team of other rehabilitative professionals to help children overcome any limitations that occur as a result of injury.

After addressing serious medical issues related to the trauma, a child may require pediatric home care nursing in Houston for an extended period of time. Nurses working with patients who have experienced trauma may specialize in both medical and rehabilitative therapies.
