Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) Treatment in Dallas & Surrounding Areas

A mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is an injury to the brain caused by external forces. Common examples that cause an mTBI are motor vehicle accidents (with or without a direct blow to the head), sports related injuries, falls or explosive blasts. Patients may or may not suffer a loss of consciousness for an mTBI to occur.

Keep in mind: Brain injuries may also occur without a direct blow to the head. This is known as a “coup contrecoup injury.” As in the case of a motor vehicle accident, the head can rapidly accelerate and decelerate while twisting and rotational forces can stretch and sever long-range connecting fibers in the brain. Damage to these fibers can disrupt communication between nerve cells and reduce the efficiency of brain function. These brain changes can be difficult to “see” with radiographs, CT or an MRI scan and be equally as difficult to find during a medical exam.

Fortunately, the expert medical doctors at the Comprehensive Spine Center of Dallas have the experience to spot even the most obscure or minute of brain injuries. If you’ve recently experienced a head injury and are looking for brain injury treatment in Dallas, contact us today! We’ll perform a comprehensive assessment and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.

When To See a Doctor

How Do I Treat an mTBI?

Some people recover without any formal treatment, however, if symptoms persist, you may be recommended additional treatment options, such as:

  • Medication may be prescribed for specific symptoms. Your doctor will discuss all of your symptoms with you and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
  • Rehabilitation of the brain with I-PAS® technology, oculomotor training, and home exercise, may also be recommended for continued symptomatology.
  • Other treatment options typically include physical and mental rest.
  • Most mTBI patients will experience symptom resolution with time and appropriate treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What treatment options exist for a mild traumatic brain injury in Dallas Texas?

Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries can be treated using a variety of techniques. While limiting physical and cognitive activities as much as possible can help treat many brain injuries, sometimes more serious interventions are necessary. Based on your diagnosis, one of our mild traumatic brain injury doctors may recommend medication to help re-stabilize your brain. Moreover, surgery and rehabilitation may also be recommended depending on the severity of your injury.

Can a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Cause Permanent Damage?

While the skull is designed to protect the brain from trauma, it’s not infallible. Brain damage caused by any Brain Injury–however mild–can last indefinitely if not treated properly. That’s why it’s so important to visit a brain injury clinic in Dallas as soon as possible following emergency medical care.

Should I still visit a doctor even if I’m not experiencing symptoms?

Yes. In fact, many people with brain injuries may not recognize they are having problems, or even see how their symptoms are affecting them. This is another reason why paying a visit to a doctor following emergency care is especially important.
