How the Brain Self-Heals after a Serious Injury – Serious Implications of Serious Injuries

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / December 27, 2020 / Brain injuries are the most devastating and often longest-lasting of serious injury types. No matter what the cause, facing the aftermath of such a malady is a major challenge. This includes both for the patient and their family. This is why and how quick medical intervention is key — and a chance to hopefully resume full life functions after such an accident.

Time is of the essence after a TBI.

Understanding TBIs

Of course, not all brain injuries are the same. And for many individuals, there is never a complete healing after a severe injury. Still, for many accident victims, the brain is surprisingly resilient. Even in cases where there is permanent brain damage, the patient is often able to return to a relatively normal life. And for many brain injury patients and their families, the most important thing is being able to resume their quality of life.

This is the topic that got me interested in the topic of traumatic brain injuries. TBIs are a yet fully understood field. In fact, there is new, groundbreaking research on the topic of brain injuries each year. Due to our better understanding of how the brain works, we can hopefully prevent such injuries in the future, as well as treat those who suffered them due to a workplace, sports, or car accident.

I was recently reading research about how the brain repairs itself after an injury. It’s a fascinating process and shows the extent of our body’s capabilities. Much of it comes down to the Neuroplasticity of our brains. The ability of our brain to transform and adapt is key to what makes us humans. It’s also key to the process of self-repair.

Understanding the Scope of Such Injuries

I’ve seen these cases all too well. In my decades in the legal field, some of the worst injuries we’ve worked with have been TBIs. We’ve worked hard to help the victims of such accidents. And in dozens of cases we’ve made them whole. But just because Ehline Law is skilled at brain injury cases doesn’t make them easy.

In fact, as the article above states, the brain requires extra assistance to fully heal itself. There is a crucial step early in the period of brain injury in which medical intervention is key. This includes the brain’s unique ability to switch functions to other portions of the organ. In addition, the brain can partially self heal through the process of repetition. This will enable to brain to learn or relearn functions and heal.

This often takes place over the first six months after a brain injury– which are crucial to the repair process. After this period of self repair, the patient will require additional help to have their brain repair. This often includes extensive therapy and medical intervention.
