The Centers for Disease Control report that hundreds of children are treated in hospitals daily for child burn injuries. Depending on the severity of the burn, and whether skin grafting is necessary, rehabilitation therapy is sometimes required.
Recovering from a child burn injury might involve the following:
- Psychological recovery – the burn itself was likely a traumatic event. Recovery might involve psychotherapy or cognitive behavioural therapy.
- Self-esteem – serious burns can cause scarring or changes to the skin tone and overall appearance. Dealing with feelings of low self-esteem and self-image can be a large part of recovering from a burn injury.
- Physical therapy – recovering from serious burns can involve long-term physical therapy, often focused on range of motion in critically ill patients. Other patients who are not critically ill, but are still hospitalized, should undergo physical therapy to ensure that they can meet functional goals before being released from the hospital.
