Polytrauma: Strongly recommend evaluation by polytrauma team. For TBI and PTSD, treatment should be symptom focused and evidenced based. Some of the same treatments that work well for PTSD can be used in individuals with mild TBI, and treatment should be individually tailored. Treatment is more complex and requires coordination and collaboration among various specialties. Please start the process! Take care.
