Abstract
This paper introduces the possible consequences of a closed head injury and the prospects for rehabilitation. It is divided into four sections. The first section explains the neurological consequences of acceleration/deceleration injuries. The second section deals with the clinical consequences. The third section introduces rehabilitation theories. And, the final section offers suggestions for developing a treatment program. It was concluded that further research must be conducted before rehabilitation programs will be able to effectively reintegrate head injury survivors into society.
