In brief: TBI

Treatment of tbi is really based on the sequelae of the brain injury and focused on the problems whether they be speech, motor function, etc.

In brief: Treat TBI

Treatment is symptomatic if there are no indications for imaging with a cat scan or mri.
Rest, refraining from contact sports and strenuous exercise, tylenol (acetaminophen) for headache, fluids for hydration, lots of sleep.
