Traumatic Brain Injury
Beijing United Family Rehabilitation Hospital provides individualized rehabilitation programs for treating brain injury patients experiencing functional limitations, as well as cognitive, emotional and behavioral abnormalities, in addition to other challenges. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. An object penetrating the skull, such as a bullet or shattered piece of skull, also can cause traumatic brain injury.
Mild traumatic brain injury may cause temporary dysfunction of brain cells. More serious traumatic brain injury can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage to the brain that can result in long-term complications or death.
Our leading TBI rehabilitation program, which includes medical care, nursing, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, hydrotherapy,nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and a range of other therapies and treatments, is uniquely suited to meet the needs of brain injury patients. As part of our world-class rehabilitation hospital service in Beijing, we provide early rehabilitation treatment for TBI patients dealing with mild to severe brain injuries, and those in-between at varying degrees of injury.

- Maximize alertness and responsiveness to happenings around them
