Is there any treatment for someone having suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Someone with signs of moderate or significant Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, should obtain medical care as quickly as possible.

Little can be done to change or alter the initial damage caused by trauma to the brain. Medical professionals may try to stabilize an individual with TBI and focus on preventing further injury. Major concerns include making sure proper oxygen supply to the brain and the body, controlling blood pressure, and maintaining necessary blood flow.

Film studies help in determining the diagnosis and prognosis of a Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, patient. Those with mild to moderate injuries should receive neck, or cervical, X-rays, as well as a skull x-ray. to look for bone fractures or spine injury.

For moderate to severe cases, a computed tomography, or CT scan, should be obtained. Moderately or worse injured individuals frequently receive rehabilitation that involves specific treatment programs such as physical therapy, physiatry (physical medicine), occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, psychology/psychiatry, and social support.
