Concussion & Brain Injury in Dallas, Tx

Advanced adult & pediatric Concussion treatment

The vast majority of traumatic brain injuries result from accidents like a car accident, or falling on the steps, or being hit during sports. Regardless of what leads to brain injury, it needs to be treated right away. The right course of treatment will promote optimal healing. No matter how mild or serious a head injury may be, it requires medical attention. In this article, we’ll take a close look at concussions and how it is treated. 

What is a concussion?

It is a mild form of a traumatic brain injury, usually as a result of a hard blow to the head, which causes the brain to bounce off the skull inside. The trauma can cause damage to the brain cells, leading to various chemical and physical changes that affect the brain’s normal function. A single concussion does not lead to long-lasting brain damage or injury. That said, permanent brain damage and subsequent degenerative brain conditions like chronic traumatic encephalopathy are of grave concern when a person suffers repeat concussions like during full-contact sports. 

The Symptoms of a Concussion

The three main symptoms include: 

  • Confusion 
  • Headaches 
  • Memory loss 

Some people may also notice: 

  • A change in their sleeping patterns 
  • A bit of nausea or consequently vomiting 
  • Sensitivity to sound and light 
  • Blurry vision, changes in their sense of smell, and ringing ears 
  • Having a hard time concentrating

The effects could end up lasting for weeks and can even develop into a chronic issue. If your symptoms persist, it is referred to as post-concussion syndrome.

What is Referred to as "Traumatic Brain Injury?"

Abbreviated as TBI, it will develop after a violent blow to the head or an injury that penetrates the skull. The brain’s tissues could be bruised, even torn and hemorrhage, resulting in permanent or temporary damage to your brain’s functioning. Severe TBI can possibly lead to death in extreme cases and coma or loss of consciousness in less extreme instances.

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

The person will have all the symptoms of a concussion in addition to: 

  • Recurring nausea and vomiting 
  • Slurred speech 
  • Inability to wake up from sleep 
  • Convulsion and seizures 
  • Agitation and restlessness 
  • Loss of coordination

Symptoms may progressively worsen with TBI, resulting in episodes of headaches and confusion. 

Brain Injury Treatment

Anyone who has suffered a concussion should rest. Our brains, like the rest of the body, require time to heal.  Doctors may recommend reducing physical activities like ones involving lots of concentration. Severe and moderate brain injury may require being hospitalized so that the condition can be actively monitored by a professional and complications averted. Hospitalization is also essential for severely symptomatic cases.

I was seen by Dr. Alshareef on a Teleneurology camera, his office staff helped me install the phone program in a few easy steps. It was a very organized visit in how he went through my medical problems one by one, and planned to meet monthly. He was so amazingly informative and help full. Thank you for all you did to help me.

My niece suffered from seizure spells for a long time & she has been prescribed several seizure medications by many doctors but continued to have seizures despite everything. We almost lost hope until a friend of us referred us to Dr. Alshareef! Going there was the best decision we made. He was extremely kind and attentive. He spent a lot of time listening to us & trying to understand our problem. He stopped the old medications she was taking & started her on a new regimen & since then she had no seizures! & it’s her first 6 months without an episode. We are so grateful. God bless you!

Dr. Al-Shareef is a fabulous neurologist and an even better human being. He takes the time to listen to the patient (and her daughter!). He looks at the whole person and tailors care based on their specific circumstances. He’s reliable, dependable, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and, most importantly, he says it like it is. As a result of Dr Al-Shareef’s insight, my mother is off a bunch of medicines, safer (reduced balance issues means less falling), doing more, and happier. If I could rate him higher than 5 stars, I would.
