What is involved in rehabilitation after an accident?

Rehabilitation is a process whereby patients with severe injuries gradually regain as much of their normal movement as possible, given the effects of the injury. It’s a matter of slow and steady progress.

Although some accident victims will have life long disabilities, they can be helped to reach their maximum recovery with the help of:

  • Specific physical movements
  • Relearning of language or other mental tasks
  • Occupational therapy
  • Recreational time where they can practice difficult movements

What treatments offer the best chance for recovery?

A team of specialists providing the medical opinions of several professionals will be able to plan the best course of treatment. Family members may also want to research the injury by reading current literature on new and experimental treatment methods.

How can families better cope after the severe injury of a loved one?

Family members close to the injured victim often feel anger, disbelief, denial and depression. While these emotions are normal, your loved one will benefit much more if you can sustain a positive outlook.

Family support is key in a patient’s recovery. There are many support groups in B.C. that can help you work through feelings with others who are going through the same thing.
