Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
For many people who endure a brain injury, the very fabric of their being is subjected to a sudden upheaval. Physical and emotional stability is impacted. The rhythm of life is temporarily or permanently altered. It can devastate a person’s life and disrupt family, work, and interaction with the world. CNS understands these realities and provides effective, comprehensive programs that treat all types of traumatic and acquired brain injuries.
Focused on community reintegration, our therapeutic approach encourages independence and rebuilding core life skills. CNS provides rehabilitation for stroke, mild traumatic brain injury, concussion, and traumatic brain injury. These events may impact cognitive, physical, and psychological capabilities. Physical deficits can impact ambulation, balance, coordination, fine motor skills, strength, and endurance. Cognitive deficits of language and communication, information processing, memory, and perceptual skills are common. Psychological status is also often altered. Adjustment to disability issues are frequently encountered by people with traumatic brain injury. Behavioral issues are a common challenge as well.
CNS is known for its expertise in traumatic brain injury rehabilitation.

When treated with individualized therapies and goal-oriented programs, the effects of the injury can be overcome.
