Individuals who experience moderate to severe levels of brain injury must get immediate medical attention. A doctor’s diagnosis will make it easier for the individual to figure out how they should properly take care of themselves. Neurological exams are commonly used to reach a neuropsychological assessment.
To prevent any chances of an individual enduring further injury, doctors will stabilize them. This will help the patient have proper blood or oxygen flow, along with having their blood pressure under control. Patients may be directed to different types of therapy depending on the circumstances they are going through. This includes:
- Physical therapy,
- Occupational therapy,
- Speech therapy, or
- Language therapy.
