The essential guide to recovering from concussion and other brain injuries.

Recovering from a brain injury can be a challenging and prolonged process. Learn how to maximize your recovery from the effects of brain injuries with the guidance of Sandeep Vaishnavi, MD, PhD, and Vani Rao, MBBS, MD, two leading medical experts with extensive experience helping patients recover from concussion and other brain injuries. Healing the Traumatized Brain explains how the brain works, how injuries affect the brain, and how to use your brain's own power to recover.

This detailed guide contains essential information on:

- The emotional, behavioral, mental, and physical effects following concussion and other brain injuries
- Medication options and lifestyle changes
- Practical strategies for healing, including stress management, behavioral therapy, and cognitive rehabilitation
- Neuroplasticity and nutrition as they affect recovery
- Behavioral disorders, balance disorders, and hormonal changes following concussion and other brain injuries
- The effects of coexisting factors such as other medical problems, recreational drug use, the misuse of prescribed medications, and poor sleep hygiene
- The science associated with repeated brain trauma and promising therapies on the horizon

Building on the work of Vaishnavi and Rao's best-selling book The Traumatized Brain, this guide is filled with practical information and tips for coping with concussion, injury from a stroke, and other brain injuries.
