Telehealth therapy yields surprising results

In the past few months, daily life has changed dramatically for Maryland residents. Widespread shutdowns gave rise to the need for modern solutions, and in the case of telehealth, some of the changes are benefiting patients. Current data seems to suggest that therapy sessions for brain injury patients might be more beneficial than a conventional in-person session. 

When a person suffers a brain injury, he or she may experience a temporary or permanent loss in communication skills. Traditionally, a patient would have a therapy session one on one with a medical professional in an office setting. Telehealth therapy sessions use technology like a video chat service to engage a patient remotely. 

Therapist testimony and solid statistics suggest that, when a patient is able to receive therapy in this way, the patient is more comfortable in his or her own home, surrounded by familiar people and objects. Family members and caretakers in the home can participate more easily, and their involvement will help a patient make progress between therapy sessions. Therapists can now see how an individual patient interacts with his or her home environment, and offer tailored tips for improved communication between a patient and the people who care for the patient. 

Therapy can be a life-saver for brain injury victims, but it may be quite expensive. Even for teletherapy, a patient would need internet access and an appropriate device. Maryland victims may want to look into taking legal action against the party who caused a serious brain injury. A successful civil suit often results in monetary awards that can be used to cover expenses like therapy, home modification, in-home care and other financial burdens that often follow a serious brain injury.
