Brain Injury Treatments

0 Comment

Motorcycle accidents unfortunately often involve accident victims who are severely injured.  Despite helmet laws, injured motorcyclists have higher rates of head trauma and brain injuries than people who are injured in cars or SUVs.

Brain injuries can have a tremendous effect on an injured motorcycle rider’s ability to lead his or her normal life.  A brain injury can cause changes in personality that affect marriages, families, and friendships.  Head trauma patients are often temporarily or permanently unable to return to work, and so they suffer a significant impairment of earnings and earning potential.  Further, brain injury patients often need expensive long-term care services due to their condition.  Part of the reason motorcycle accidents involving brain injuries are so devastating is that the brain is complex organ, which is still not completely understood.  This fact makes treating the brain injuries very difficult.

I recently read about a new brain injury treatment that focuses on using social clues to treat brain injuries.  Before this study was released, it was already widely known that brain injuries can cause personality changes and changes in behavior, which can create difficultly in dealing with social situations.  The study focused on re-teaching basic social skills to people with brain injuries.

For example, handling sarcasm often presents a great difficulty for people with brain injuries because sarcasm involves positive words which are spoken in a negative tone or manner.  People with brain injuries often have difficulty interpreting the mixed messages.

The treatment prescribed in this study involved increasingly sophisticated re-education as to how and why people send mixed messages in social settings and how to respond to them.  The patients reported some improvement in responding to new social situations, which is certainly a cause for hope for injured motorcyclists with brain injuries.
