Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

Comprehensive Diagnosis & Treatment of Head & Brain Injuries

Your physiatrist at Washington Township Medical Foundation can help you begin to come back after a brain injury. Specialized rehabilitation services allow for a unique, thorough approach. Your doctor of physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) helps you by crafting a long-term plan for your rehabilitation process.

Some of the tests that can help diagnose / assess the extent of a brain injury include:

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans
  • Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scan
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Lumbar punctures / spinal taps
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG)

Once a diagnosis has been made and the extent of the injury has been assessed, the next step is to begin a treatment plan. There are many different types of head injuries and varying degrees of damage, ranging from a minor concussion to significant and extensive head trauma that may cause irreversible brain damage. There are many different symptoms that can be associated with brain damage, making it a difficult condition to completely diagnose. Working closely with your physiatrist to develop a comprehensive, adaptive plan is crucial. Make an appointment with our PM&R team at Washington Township Medical Foundation in Fremont.
