Occupational therapy for Traumatic brain and spinal cord injury and more

Traumatic Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury are tragic events that could happen to an individual. The 2 organs that control the functions of the entire body being injured are painful and lead to disabilities.

What are Spinal Cord Injury?

Spinal Cord Injury or SCI results in the individual losing their mobility or functions below the injury site. The effect of the injury on the person depends on the site of the injury and whether or not it is complete or incomplete. In Complete Spinal Cord Injury, the body parts below the injury completely lose all the sensations and functions and are completely cut off from the brain. In Incomplete SCI, the parts still have a faint chance of regaining movement and sensation as the connection is not lost yet.

What are Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic Brain Injury(TBI) is caused due to a violent strike on the head. It results in damage to the brain. The severity of the damage and its effect on the body depends on the type of injury, whether mild, moderate, or severe brain injury. Mild brain injury effects include nausea, sensitivity to light, dizziness, loss of balance, etc. Moderate or severe brain injury includes loss of coordination, convulsions, vomiting, slurred speech, etc.

Traumatic Brain Injuries are a difficult condition to treat, but occupational therapy has proven to be a highly effective treatment for those who have suffered severe injuries. The long-term consequences of brain injury are unpredictable and difficult to deal with. An occupational therapist assesses each case individually, and creates an individualized treatment plan to improve the odds of a positive outcome.

Thus, both Spinal Cord Injury and Traumatic Brain Injury lead to disruption in normal movements of the body, which are important for day-to-day life. It can lead to additional stress and give the individual a feeling of being dependent when he/she wants to live a normal life.

Although the injury would leave a lasting mark, it doesn’t necessarily affect your daily life because there are treatments that can help people suffering from such injuries to follow their daily routine without being dependent on anyone.

Treating Spinal Cord Injury and Traumatic Brain Injury

Treatments for SCI and TBI include medications, surgery, and therapy. While medications and surgery are very effective ways to help you get through it, we will only talk about therapy.

Therapy is a program performed by a professional therapist to help you solve your problems. Occupational Therapists are professionals who help you to be better at performing everyday activities by conducting sessions and exercises.

Therapies are an excellent way to overcome the barriers that stop you from performing daily activities or make them difficult. With exercises and activities, therapies aim to provide you with opportunities of growing irrespective of the injury.

Occupational Therapy can help patients regain independence in many aspects of their lives, including basic activities such as cooking, bathing, and driving. Neuropsychologists are also involved in rehabilitation and focus on restoring patients' ability to participate in everyday life. They may also work with patients on cognitive and memory strengthening exercises.

Occupational therapy is an essential component of spinal cord injury rehabilitation, but the specific activities used to aid recovery have not been fully researched. Rehabilitation is crucial for a person suffering from a traumatic brain or spinal cord injury. In order to help the patient function properly, OTs use special exercises and strategies to help the patient regain their strength and ability to perform everyday tasks. The rehabilitation process is ongoing, and ongoing care is essential to prevent relapses and improve recovery.
