Treatment varies from one case to another. Usually, mild TBI treatment includes rest and enough sleep. If a headache is present, pain relievers are enough. If the headaches are consistent and worsen with time, you should attend to the doctor.
Moderate to severe TBI requires medical attention to prevent further damage. You must check your signs, blood pressure, and oxygen to double-check that your brain is functioning correctly.
Doctors will determine the treatment you should follow. They can prescribe anticoagulants to prevent blood clots, stimulants to increase attention, rehabilitation therapies (like speech therapy), and even surgery.
It is important to point out that if surgery is needed and partial loss of function in the brain is present, the treatment is to prevent further deterioration of the patient’s capacities. However, there is no cure for it.
