How Is A Brain Injury Diagnosed And Treated For A Broward County Slip And Fall Victim?
The number one cause of traumatic brain injury is from a slip and fall accident. A Florida slip and fall brain injury is likely to affect the victim in various shapes and forms. Family, friends, and co-workers may notice a difference in the person’s functions days or weeks after the incident.
For this reason, it is vital for slip and fall accident victims to receive immediate medical attention. Even if the head injury appears minor, it is often likely that the trauma is more profound than the symptoms appear to others.
To determine the precise location and extent of the brain damage, a myriad of exams will need to be performed including neuro-imaging tests such as CT or MRI and neuropsychological assessments. In order to contain or minimize the slip and fall brain injury, doctors will need to stabilize the patient. Once medical staff can be assured that blood pressure is controlled and blood and oxygen are flowing properly to the brain, the patient will begin what is often the road to a long-term recovery. Treatment may include occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, psychological therapy, and physical therapy.
