    An acquired brain injury (ABI) is an injury to the brain that is not hereditary, congenital, degenerative, or induced by birth trauma.

    Arrangements for follow up are, in the majority of hospitals, unstructured. We recommend a positive approach to the management and follow up of mild head injury. This should recognize the common problems experienced by these patients and cater for their needs. More interest and research is required into this aspect of head injury. Occupational therapy successfully provides quantifiable rehabilitation for traumatic brain injury patients. A well-respected treatment approach for the elderly, mentally ill, and disabled, occupational therapy can help those struggling with brain injuries to regain the normal rhythms of their pre-injury lives by re-educating them to carry out routine activities.
