Depending on the seriousness of the injury the treatment required may be
minimal or may require medications or emergency surgery. It is important
to have any suspected brain trauma injury taken seriously and checked
immediately to avoid further injury to the brain. Because little can be
done to reverse the initial damage caused by the trauma, stabilizing the
individual and ensuring a proper oxygen supply to the brain and the rest
of the body as well as maintaining adequate blood flow and controlling
blood pressure are main concerns of the physician. Injuries resulting
from objects entering the brain require treatment by a highly skilled
neurosurgeon to remove particles or objects that may be embedded in the
brain or skull and damage can be permanent. Because each injury is different
the treatment will vary depending on the type and acuteness of injury.
Further treatment through physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational
therapy and possibly psychological therapy may be required to assist in
the recovery and rehabilitation of the individual.
