Frequently Asked Questions
Our Approach To Head Injury Treatment
We take car accident injuries seriously, especially when it comes to your head. For minor head injuries with concussion-like symptoms, we administer a brain scan test shortly after an injury occurs. Additionally, our trained neuro specialist determines head injury severity and works closely with our medical providers to determine proper concussion management and head injury treatment.
Brain Scan Testing
Our brain scan platform utilizes a mixture of neurocognitive tests and an electroencephalogram (aka EEG) to test electrical activity in the brain. No poking, no prodding, it’s a non-invasive, pain-free tool to track and record brain wave patterns. The EEG uses sensors called electrodes to measure the electrical impulses in your brain. Ultimately, those electrical impulses equate to an objective measurement of brain activity. The data from the elctrodes is collected via a computer and helps us detect peotential problems and help direct head injury treatment.
Accident Head Injury Treatment Assessment
After reviewing memory capacity, reaction time, and speed of mental processing indicators from the brain scan platform, our medical provider will discuss the next steps for concussion treatment. They may determine if additional exams, imaging or labs are needed.
What Causes a Head Injury in a Car Accident?
There are several causes of TBI head trauma in a car accident. Most often head impact with another object such as the dash, steering wheel, or window can cause violent injury resulting in bruising and concussion. At fast speeds, debris that is thrown around during a crash can cause serious injury to the head and brain.
Signs & Symptoms of TBIs, Concussions, & Head Injuries
If you’re wondering if you’ve suffered a TBI then you need to check for signs of damage. The most common TBI symptoms include headaches, bleeding around the head, blurred vision, memory problems, dizziness, and nausea. There are also some less common symptoms that may occur: double vision, loss of balance, and sensitivity to light.
