January is National Winter Sports Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Awareness Month
We know many of you love winter sports, and so do we (although we don’t get to experience a whole lot of it here in southern Florida)! But you can head indoors for a little ice skating or you may decide to be a snowbird and take a ski trip to a favorite winter destination.
But remember this: with all the winter fun also, unfortunately, comes winter sports accidents that can occur during skiing, hockey and ice skating and those can result in serious injuries, including head trauma and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) accompanied by serious health consequences.
January is National Winter Sports Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month, and we here at Physical Therapy NOW can provide you with a myriad of services to promote your recovery from a winter sports injury and TBI. If you are in need of TBI physical therapy in Miami, reach out to us today!
