Why We Like This Video:

Professional athletes and everyday people are susceptible to brain injury. What is important for both patients with brain injury and clinical providers working with clients with brain injury is to know that no two brain injuries are alike. Learning how to handle the unknown for both patients with brain injury and clinical providers can help bring clarity to understanding the diversity of treatment plans for brain injury and long-term outcomes after brain injury.
