Looking after your health is an essential part of maximizing your brain’s potential after a brain injury.
One way to look after your health is to make sure that you eat a healthy diet. This is important as our brains need energy and nutrients for healthy brain chemistry, functioning of nerves, and correct neurotransmitter levels. You should also make sure that you take any medications prescribed to you by your doctor.

Most people with a brain injury are expected to experience a normal life span but families and carers can play a crucial role by monitoring for any further medical problems arising post-injury, particularly after hospital.
