The Benefits of Art and Music Therapy After a TBI

Published on August 26th, 2019

Those who have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI) know how difficult life post-accident can be. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1.5 million people in the U.S. suffer from a traumatic brain injury every year. During the lawsuit process, our brain injury lawyers in Chicago will work alongside you to help you establish your case and obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.

What many people may not consider is the quality of life after the lawsuit ends. Both art and music therapy following a TBI has been proven as beneficial in the healing process. Examples include listening to creative music, creative writing or taking the time to make a creative art piece. 

Art Therapy

Our brain injury lawyers in Chicago have personally seen how powerful art therapy can be in healing those who have suffered from a TBI. Art helps improve motor skills such as hand-eye coordination and helps strengthen the body. It is also a great outlet to express yourself that helps release many different emotions and thoughts. Even if you have never picked up a paintbrush, you can benefit from art therapy. 

Music Therapy

Music is a powerful tool that has many benefits for TBI sufferers. Certain songs have the ability to transport us to a particular time, as music has a strong correlation to our memory. Plus, the lyrics and structure in a song may stir up particular emotions. While not every memory or flashback may be positive, music is still an opportunity for TBI sufferers to remember that there is still a wonderful life ahead. Boost your mood by making a playlist of some of your all-time favorite songs. 

Don’t hesitate to contact our brain injury lawyers in Chicago if you or a loved one has experienced a devastating injury. Our team at Ryan, Ryan and Viglione is here to help.
