21 Jun Treatment for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury by Sarasota Chiropractor John Lieurance, D.C.
MTBI; Mild Traumatic Brain Injury.
Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, (MTBI), or, Post Concussive Syndrome
Mild traumatic brain injury, (MTBI) and traumatic brain injury, (TBI) often simply referred to as concussion, or Post concussive syndrome has become a focus of attention in recent years with ever increasing understanding of brain function. MTBI, or concussion is a traumatically induced, and traumatic brain injury symptoms include alteration in mental status. If you or anyone you know has suffered from a brain injury, you could look into a company like Nehora Law Firm, to help purse the compensation you deserve.
This may or may not be associated with loss of consciousness. Manifestations of MTBI or concussion present as head injury symptoms, traumatically induced physiologic disruption in brain function. Manifestations may or may not include loss of consciousness, coma, memory loss, (amnesia), alteration of mental state or personality, or focal neurologic deficits. Concussions may cause temporary impairment of neurologic function, lasting impairment, coma and death.
Automobile accidents, and contact sports are among the most common causes of concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). With most professional contact players having a brain injury at some point, it is important they have a personal injury lawyer in contact if the worst happens. An example of a personal injury lawyer you could use can be found at https://www.harrybrownlaw.com/savannah-personalinjury-attorney.
Treatment of patients with Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, (MTBI) or concussion can vary widely. Whereas many conditions resolve spontaneously with time, others require extensive intervention ranging from rehabilitation to complicated neurosurgical procedures. Brain injury programs at our office are largely dependent on symptoms of brain injury and clinical examination findings. EWOT to oxygenate the brain tissue can be tremedously helpfull, and early intervention with chiropractic using functional neurology can improve outcome and speed healing. B-6 take orally in the form of P-5P and in IM injection.
The signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can be marked or subtle. Symptoms of MTBI/TBI may not appear until days, weeks, or even months following the injury or may even be missed entirely. Individuals with MTBI/TBI may look fine even though they may act or feel differently than they did prior to their injury. The following are some common signs and symptoms of MTBI/TBI:
- Blurred vision, double vision, or eye fatigue, (eyes that tire easily)
- Loss of sense of smell or taste
- Tinnitus, (ringing in the ears)
- Headaches and/ or chronic neck pain
- Difficulty remembering, concentrating, or decision making
- Slowness in thinking, speaking, acting, or reading
- Getting lost or easily confused
- Feeling tired all of the time, having no energy or motivation
- Mood changes, (feeling sad or angry for no reason)
- Changes in sleep patterns (sleeping a lot more or having a hard time sleeping)
- Light-headedness, dizziness, or imbalance, (dysequilibrium)
- Nausea or vomitus
- Increased sensitivity to lights and/or sounds
Children with a brain injury can have the same symptoms as adults, but it is often harder for them to let others know how they feel. In addition to the above, the following symptoms should be observed in children:
- Tiredness or listlessness
- Irritability or crankiness (will not stop crying or cannot be consoled)
- Changes in eating (will not eat or nurse)
- Changes in the way the child plays
- Changes in performance at school
- Lack of interest in favorite toys or activities
- Loss of newly learned skills, such as toilet training
