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.
