Although there may be similar symptoms or causes, no two brain injuries are the same. We’ve outlined some of the symptoms more commonly associated with traumatic brain injuries along with examples of the treatment and the processes involved with rehabilitation following your accident.
SYMPTOMS: Can vary depending on the type injury, can often lead to similar effects as the traumatic injuries listed below.
TREATMENT: Diagnosis then treatment based on the specific injury, this could involve surgery or the use of medication.
REHABILITATION: Again this varies based upon the type and severity of the injury.
SYMPTOMS: Unconsciousness, skull fractures, bleeding.
TREATMENT: Diagnostic testing to assess the true nature of the injury, surgery to repair skull or stem bleeding or swelling on the brain.
REHABILITATION: Recovery from surgery – antibiotics, hospital stay. Observation to help further define the injuries from a neurological perspective and assess what other action needs to be taken.
SYMPTOMS: Changes in behavior, impulse control, mood, personality, memory, concentration etc.
TREATMENT: Assessment of the damage caused to see if any changes are present in the patient – reduced faculties etc.
REHABILITATION: Occupation therapy, psychotherapy, potentially medication to alleviate any dangerous shifts in mood or impulse control.
SYMPTOMS: Prolonged unconsciousness, potential for other brain damage depending on the location of the injury.
TREATMENT: Initial treatment to reduce any swelling on the brain, then physiotherapy and other occupational therapies to help regain any lost functions following the injury.
REHABILITATION: A slow process guided by the severity of the injury and the impact it has had, which can take time to be fully uncovered.
SYMPTOMS: Hormonal imbalances, difficulty moving and muscle spasms, persistent vegetative state (coma).
TREATMENT: Using a ventilator to attempt to reintroduce more oxygen into the blood and aid brain recovery. Surgery to repair damage to the brain or reduce potential swelling.
REHABILITATION: Depends on severity of the injury and the time the brain spent with restricted or no access to oxygen.
