How are Traumatic Brain Injuries Diagnosed?

Traditional brain injury diagnostics tests typically focus on structural neurology. At Concussion Center Atlanta we not only test for structural issues but for neurological function with multiple rounds of testing to get to the root issue.

If you have experienced a traumatic brain injury and are experiencing balance issues, had or have a concussion, memory issues, or whiplash connect with us today.

Get back to play, back to work, and back to life

If you have experienced a car accident, sports injury, or a slip and fall accident and were diagnosed with a concussion you may have suffered a traumatic brain injury. Connect with us for Diagnostic Testing and Imaging and feel like yourself again.

Treatments for Traumatic Brain Injuries

Once we’ve determined the root cause of your injury, the next step is treatment:

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – This treatment involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized environment so your lungs can gather as much oxygen as possible in comparison to normal oxygen levels in the air. The extra oxygen in your blood stimulates growth factors and stem cells that promote healing and provide a surplus of oxygen for the brain.
  • Vestibular Treatment – With vestibular therapy, you can treat vertigo, dizziness, gaze instability, imbalances, and falls. This form of therapy is for restorative measure for the vestibular function; the system that provides spatial awareness and balance to the body.

Dr Chappuis and his team repaired my failed back surgery and I am so thankful for this blessing! My pain was unbearable and I didn’t know what to do because every doctor I saw told me my pathology looked fine.

The team at Spine Center Atlanta are professional, caring, and very knowledgeable. They took care of me every step of the way. I finally have my life back!

I highly recommend Spine Center Atlanta.
