Providing integrated care in our home environment offers distinct opportunities for clients to focus on self-determination, independence, and community.


What is a traumatic brain injury?

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an impairment to the brain caused by a sudden physical force, such as a blow to the head. The Centers for Disease Control estimate that 200,000 people suffer from the condition in the United States annually. In addition to any emergency care needed and provided to treat their immediate safety, TBIs may also require healing and repair at a slower pace over time.

Our team understands the difficulties faced with living with TBI and can provide professional advice and support when needed. From initial assessment to therapy sessions or support groups, we offer a variety of appointment types that can accommodate different needs—both emergency ones and long-term ones. Additionally, our therapists are available for consultations when necessary, providing dedicated followership during the recovery period. To learn more about the range of services offered, or even schedule an appointment today, please contact us at 913-284-9718. 

Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can have wide-ranging impacts on patients and their families, including long-term disabilities. This type of injury is usually the result of a violent blow to the head or a penetrating head wound and often occurs as a result of car accidents, falls, sports accidents, or other causes such as physical assaults. After the initial injury occurs, damage can continue to evolve during the hours and days after due to the brain’s swelling or other tissues affected.

Symptoms of TBI vary depending on the severity but typically involve memory loss, headaches, difficulty sleeping, nausea and vomiting, and various cognitive issues that negatively impact concentration and comprehension skills. The fatigue caused by these symptoms can be debilitating in more severe cases. Other potential risks may include vision problems, difficulty communicating fluently due to slurred speech, or an inability to form complete thoughts. Ultimately, all forms of TBI cause disruption for both patients and their loved ones as they must learn how to adjust lifestyle routines in order to best care for themselves following this tragic event.

Trauma Brain Injury Counseling

At Neuro RehabCare Kansas City, our therapy and counseling sessions are designed to provide patients with the education, resources, and support they need to manage their TBI symptoms. Our team of specialists is dedicated to helping clients identify the obstacles they face in life and work together to create strategies for overcoming them.

We offer individual counseling sessions that focus on providing patients with a safe space to discuss their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. This can help clients process their TBI and the changes it has caused in their lives. Group counseling is also available for those looking to join a supportive community of peers who can relate to similar struggles and successes. Additionally, Neuro RehabCare KC provides family counseling sessions that help families learn how to better support one another during the recovery process.

Traumatic Brain Injury Support Groups

An often overlooked but highly important aspect of recovery from a traumatic brain injury is the involvement of support groups. Support groups offer a space to connect with people in similar situations who understand each other’s experiences and grievances. Through ongoing meetings, support groups provide much-needed physical, emotional, and functional support for patients who are going through long-term recovery from a traumatic brain injury.

Support groups do far more than just provide an ear for listening and comfort. In addition to offering emotional relief, members of these supports can gain knowledge about their condition and have the opportunity to learn new strategies that improve their ability to cope with symptoms and challenges associated with their injury. Moreover, group members benefit from hearing how others are dealing with similar problems as well as advice on how to deal with any issues they might encounter as they recover. Finally, by connecting with others in the same situation, patients develop strong social bonds, which can play an instrumental role in transitioning back into some kind of normalcy following a traumatic brain injury.
