Finding your way through a traumatic brain injury

If you are dealing with the consequences of suffering a traumatic brain injury, you are one of many New Yorkers facing a long-term recovery. With the right mindset and a commitment to come out on top, you can overcome your injury and excel. At Defrancisco & Falgiatano, LLP, we have helped many people navigate the complexities of brain injuries.

According to Psychology Today, if you are coping with a TBI, you can take several proactive steps to expedite your recovery and encourage long-term progress. These include the following:

  • Break tasks into sections: If you have seemingly large tasks to complete, break each one down into smaller sections. Doing so will make things more manageable and will empower your self-confidence as each portion is successfully completed.
  • Use repetition: Repetition is an incredibly effective way to re-train your brain to function the way it used to. For example, ask people to repeat what they have said, repeat names of people you want to remember and repeat directions to locations you visit frequently.
  • Watch for signs of exhaustion: As you recover, tasks that used to be simple and effortless may require more time and energy to complete. Do not get discouraged with yourself as you relearn certain things, and as soon as you sense yourself getting overwhelmed, stop and take a break.
  • Exercise and complete therapy: Chances are, your health care provider will give you specific exercises to incorporate into your therapy. It is imperative that you complete these and other general exercises to help strengthen your body and encourage growth and healing.

Do your best to take good care of yourself by getting enough rest and eating right. Through your vigilance, you can encourage your body to make progress at a faster rate. For more information about head injuries, visit our web page.
