The term "polytrauma" is defined as a serious injury to two or more body systems which result in physical, cognitive, or psychological impairments that limit a person's ability to function. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) frequently occurs in polytrauma.
TBI wounds are often invisible, the treatment complex, and the effects far-reaching.
Though it weighs barely three pounds, the brain has an enormous job.
A TBI can have varying physical, behavioral, and cognitive effects.
Rehabilitation helps patients return to the most independent and productive life possible.
