What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A Traumatic Brain Injury has been known as the invisible injury for many years but is now getting the recognition it deserves. TBI’s are diagnosed in a spectrum from the most debilitating head injuries that result in death or paralysis, all the way to mild concussions that result in temporary symptoms. Regardless of the extent of the injury, a TBI can cause PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, and CHEMICAL symptoms. Physical symptoms are headaches, dizziness, and muscle pains. Emotional symptoms include irritability, depression, or lack of empathy, Chemical symptoms include confusion, brain fog, and fatigue.
Dr. Joseph Schneider and Dr. Robert Waterson are specialists that recognize and treat each TBI with pinpoint accuracy. The success of each patient starts from the unique care-plan that is built from the extensive diagnostic process. It is often said that the patient knows the most about their injury. Dr. Joseph Schneider has been treating patients with concussions for decades. Each Patient recovers and resumes life and even performs better than before the accident. Dr. Robert Waterson played football through the collegiate level and knows what it feels like to be a concussion patient without help. He has devoted his career to making patients feel at home at Hope Brain & Body Recovery Center.
The Risks of Not Seeking Treatment
Research is showing that brain injury sustained early in life – especially if left untreated or undertreated – increases a person’s risk of developing dementia sooner as they age. For example, think about the recent news regarding athletes who sustain those hard hits during practice and on the field and the issues they are experiencing later in life.
