Traumatic Brain Injuries
Treatment of brain injury due to head trauma.
What are we doing in this treatment? Our main goal is to maximize the capacity of the healthy nerve cell to take over the task of the damaged cell. For this purpose, we perform three-stage treatment in ensuring synaptogenesis; to increase the blood flow of the brain, to strengthen the energy sources of the brain and to provide maximum protection to the brain tissue.
Traumatic Brain Injuries | TBI
Neuropsychiatric symptoms tend to be most severe in the first few months following a TBI. In mild-moderate TBI, the typical course is complete or substantial improvement of neuropsychiatric symptoms. Approximately 80% of all TBIs are of mild severity. The symptoms associated with mild TBI resolve within days to weeks after the injury, with complete resolution typical by 3 months. Neuropsychiatric symptoms such as depression, irritability, fatigue, headache, photosensitivity, sleep disturbance also tend to resolve in the weeks following mild TBI.
In moderate to severe TBI, seizures (particularly in the first year), photosensitivity, and hyperacusis can remain. Neuropsychiatric symptoms such as irritability, aggression, depression, sleep disturbance, fatigue, and apathy can occur. These changes can lead to significant psychosocial impairment compared to the pre-injury level, and deterioration in interpersonal relationships. Moderate and severe TBI are associated with increased risk of depression, PTSD, aggression, and possibly neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.
