Brain Injury Basics
Brain injury – following trauma, the growth of a tumor, tumor resection, and stroke – occurs after at least some sensorimotor development has occurred. The presence of a period of sensorimotor development distinguishes brain injury from cerebral palsy, which typically has its origins at birth.
Treatment for cerebral palsy involves habilitation – the fostering of optimum sensorimotor development, balance, and functional and movement skills not previously acquired.
Treatment for brain injury involves rehabilitation – the regaining of impaired or lost movement and functional skills.
