Important Information about Traumatic Brain Injuries
If you hit your head in a violent collision – be it during a car accident, after a steep fall, or while playing a sport – you may suffer a concussion or traumatic brain injury. The resulting damage following a head injury can include neck pain, headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and mood changes. If you notice any of these following a blow to the head, visit Exceptional Emergency Center in Texas without hesitation. But even if you do not recognize any symptoms right away, give us a call to discuss the situation. It may be best to stop by for an examination anyway because some signs may take days or months to appear. Traumatic brain injuries and head trauma can have long-lasting effects that hinder daily life. To help reduce or prevent such complications, we will provide immediate care.
Concussions: The Most Common Type of Traumatic Brain Injury
Of all traumatic brain injuries, head concussions are the most common. They are the result of direct impacts, quick acceleration and deceleration, or blasts. If you have a head injury, visit one of our Texas locations immediately for diagnosis. We will determine the grade of your concussion before proceeding with treatment. Grade 1 is mild, grade 2 is moderate, and grade 3 is severe. Each may include brain swelling and needs to be addressed shortly after it occurs. Concussion treatment includes taking a break from regular activities and avoiding repeat concussions. In cases of severe brain swelling, surgery may be required. Exceptional Emergency Center will also advise you on how to deal with post-concussion syndrome. It is difficult to diagnose but often follows a concussion and includes many of the same symptoms. We may prescribe pain medications to alleviate your discomfort.
Our Trauma and Injury Team Can Handle Broken Bones
Not all trauma involves the head. Sometimes, you may fall and break a bone. Whether you have a femur fracture, clavicle fracture, or broken wrist, we can help at any time during the day. We have x-ray equipment as well as additional state-of-the-art medical tools to pinpoint your injury and determine a treatment plan. If you take a nasty fall and break your leg, it is not an option to wait for medical care. That is why we are available at any time to provide prompt treatment. Our physicians can immobilize your broken bones, set them back in place, and begin the path to recovery without forcing you to wait in long lines at the hospital or suffer in pain until your family physician can fit you into his or her schedule.
