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
- 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.
