Brain injuries are a challenge to overcome. But it makes a huge difference to have a brain injury treatment center on your side. Fox Subacute is a world-class nursing care facility with several locations in Pennsylvania: in Plymouth Meeting, Warrington, and Mechanicsburg. We accept post-acute but medically complex situations. Someone recovering from a brain injury may need a place where they can stay and receive constant care and rehabilitation while they recover. We understand that brain injuries are complex and our specialists and caring staff will treat your loved ones as if they are our own.
Below are some types of brain injuries that could be treated at Fox Subacute:
- Diffuse Axonal Injury: This kind of brain injury is caused by a shaking or severe rotation of the head, most often caused in adults by car accidents. Tearing of nerve tissue causes the brain to not communicate like it should and causes chemicals to be released in the brain, adding to the injury.
- Coup-Contrecoup Injury: This type of injury occurs when the damage is not just to one side of the brain, but the trauma was sever enough to damage to opposite side of the brain as well.
- Penetrating Injury: Penetrating injuries occur from a bullet, knife, or other sharp object. A slow-moving object can cause more damage because it can ricochet around the brain.
Brain injuries can be a scary subject to broach. But while they sound gruesome to talk about, the majority of them are actually caused by falls according to the Center of Disease and Control Injury Prevention Center. This is something that can happen to anyone, under the wrong circumstances. We treat our brain injury patients with the utmost respect and care at Fox Subacute.
