In most cases, the brain cannot fully recover from a traumatic brain injury like what is caused by anoxic anoxia. The best alternative treatment for anoxic anoxia for some people may be to make lifestyle changes to live with the complications created by the disorder. Generally, the same problems that occur 3-6 months after the episode occurs will continue to occur throughout life. Brain rehabilitation programs, however, can often help people who have suffered from acquired brain injuries like anoxic anoxia. These treatment programs help people suffering from brain injuries recover by helping them rediscover life skills.
