Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment in South Florida Tri-County Area

Benefit from Multiple Specialists Working Your Case

Traumatic brain injury is a serious type of neurotrauma that poses significant threats to your health and wellbeing both immediately and long-term. While it can exist as an isolated wound, it frequently accompanies other serious bodily injuries. If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident in which you suspect you’ve sustained a severe head injury, contact iRISE Spine and Joint immediately.

Our specialists have the experience and expertise necessary to aid in your recovery. Contact us today to get started.

Diagnosing Traumatic Brain Injuries

If our specialists have reason to suspect that you have sustained a brain injury, we will likely utilize magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to get a clearer view of the area to understand the severity of the damage. Even with these advanced images, our specialists may not receive enough information from the scans alone to offer a diagnosis.

Our specialists will supplement scans with neurological examinations that allow us to review your brain’s function by assessing your ability to complete basic tasks. These tests typically include blinking your eyes, moving your limbs, and following other simple directions. We will also pay close attention to your speech throughout the evaluation.

Ranging Severity of Brain Trauma

Brain trauma can arise from any blunt-force injury to your head, whether it’s the result of a car wreck, abuse, or other accident. Brain injury carries great risks because it can lead to the malfunctioning of brain cells and prolonged health concerns. Brain injuries are typically divided into three categories:

  • Mild traumatic brain injury
  • Moderate traumatic brain injury
  • Severe traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injuries range in seriousness and damage depending on the duration of the patient’s loss of consciousness. Mild injury victims experience a changed mental status for 30 minutes or less and may have a concussion. Moderate cases see a loss of consciousness between 30 minutes and six hours. The most severe cases last longer than six hours, typically resulting in a coma.

There are a number of conditions that can develop from traumatic brain injuries, including:

  • Contusion, or a bruise on brain tissue
  • Hematoma, or a blood clot within or on the brain
  • Intracerebral hemorrhage, or bleeding from brain tissue
  • Ischemia, or insufficient blood flow to specific parts of the brain
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage, or bleeding between your brain and the membrane that surrounds it

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

While symptoms vary in every patient, there are some common signs that patients should look out for. You should always seek medical attention after a head injury, especially if you are experiencing:

  • Change in vision
  • Confusion
  • Dilated pupils
  • Dizziness
  • Lethargy
  • Loss of bladder or bowel control
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Ringing in ears
  • Sleepiness
  • Speech abnormalities

To lessen the potential of long-term effects from traumatic brain injuries, it’s crucial to seek medical attention immediately if you witness any of the symptoms listed above.
