JOHNSON CITY, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES, August 4, 2022 /EINPresswire.com / -- Tri-Cities Functional Medicine has released a guide on when to consider treatment for a traumatic brain injury (TBI). If left untreated, they can have debilitating side effects that hinder someone's productivity in their daily life.
TBIs often occur because of a motor vehicle accident or sports-related injury. The most common TBI that people suffer from is a concussion. They are mild a TBI that occur when the brain hits the inside of the skull and bruises.
People can get TBIs when an external force occurs and disrupts the nerves of signals in the brain. Due to the disruption, people can typically have physical and cognitive side effects. Some of the most common side effects include:
•Dizziness or blurry vision
•Disorientation and confusion
•Drowsiness and fatigue
•Nausea and vomiting
•Balance and coordination problems
•Possible loss of consciousness
•Sensitivity to light
•Ringing in the ears
•Seizures and paralysis
•Involuntary eye movement
•Tingling or numbness in the limbs
•Breathing and swallowing problems
•Loss of bladder and bowel control
•Attention and concentration difficulties
•Depression and anxiety
•Mood and personality changes
TBIs can have long-term effects that can hinder someone's ability to function. Children are most at risk for having cognitive discrepancies that present themselves through not reaching critical learning blocks or struggling to regulate emotionally. People who have suffered a TBI can often have personality changes.
If someone is experiencing symptoms of a TBI or has had a drastic behavior change, they should seek medical attention. Getting help will allow a treatment plan to be established earlier in the process and avoid an untreated TBI's long-term effects.
