Dr. Tim Conrad answered:

What is the cure for traumatic mydriasis?

A few possibilities

Mydriasis
Traumatic mydriasis, or perminent dilation of the eye from an injury, is not a curable condition. It is, however, treatable. Usually drops that shrink the pupil do not work on this. A colored contact lens can help with the sensitivity to light. Surgery can be done to shrink the pupil. See your ophthalmologist to review your options.

Dr. Netan Choudhry answered:

Is there any cure for traumatic mydriasis?

Yes

Enlarged_pupils
Traumatic Mydriasis is caused by damage to the muscles which normally cause the pupil to become small in daylight, if severely damaged, a surgery could be done to cosmetically improve the appearance of the pupil. The muscle itself however cannot at this time be fixed.

Please let me know if there is any cure for traumatic mydriasis?

No cure

Mydriasis
Sometimes drops can shrink the pupil but they do not work in most cases of traumatic mydriasis. A colored contact lens to cover the dilated pupil is a reasonable way to deal with this problem.

Dilated pupil

Iris
Traumatic mydriasis is when the pupil is dilated or larger than normal after an eye injury. This can occur after certain types of trauma as the muscles that cause constriction of the iris can be damaged.

What is the treatment for traumatic elbow dislocation?

Reduction

Nursemaids_elbow
You need to be seen emergently and have the elbow relocated or reduced. Anesthesia/sedation is generally required to relax the muscles to allow for the joint to be reduced. You may require a period of immobilization.

Dr. Jeff Jacobs answered:

What is the treatment for post traumatic stress disorder?

Therapy and meds

Sleep
The primary optimal treatment for PTSD is psychotherapy (talk-therapy), often trauma focused psychotherapy, and/or EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing). Medications may also be helpful in reducing overall anxiety, panic attacks, flashbacks, co-occurring depression, and for normalizing sleep patterns. Co-occurring substance abuse is common and requires its own treatment, if present.

What is the treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder?

PTSD treatment

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can be very complex, and may need multiple types of treatment. A thorough psychiatric evaluation is the best way to start, to understand some of the precipitating events and ongoing triggers. Psychotherapy with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) can help move through and release painful emotion. Medications are sometimes needed, not always.

Which treatment works the best and fastest for traumatic nerve injury?

SCENAR

Nerve_injury
Good nutritional support (omega 3 supplement high in DHA), and SCENAR treatment are two good starts. SCENAR is a microcurrent biofeedback device that needs to be used by a certified and experienced practitioner, but can be particularly helpful. It's similar to a TENS unit, but much more effective.
