Brain and spine injury in Model Town

Posted By Vineet VARGHESE     March 30, 2022    


Brain and spine injuries are often the result of falls, motor vehicle accidents, and sports-related injuries. Some injuries might be the result of internal conditions, such as infection, inflammation, tumors, bleeding, or problems such as strokes or aneurysms. 

Physicians at UT Southwestern have the experience and expertise to treat a range of brain and spine injuries. Our multidisciplinary team includes physicians and nurses who are specialists in brain and spinal cord injuries; they work closely with physical, speech, and occupational therapists; rehabilitation psychologists; and social workers.

Preventing Brain and Spine Trauma

Prevention of brain and spine trauma involves safe practices and protective measures:

  • Wear a helmet when playing sports and while riding a bicycle, motorcycle, skateboard, or all-terrain vehicle.
  • Drive safely. Car crashes are one of the most common causes of head and spinal cord injuries. Wear a seat belt as a driver or passenger and don’t drink and drive (or text and drive).
  • Check water depth before diving. Do not dive into a body of water unless it is at least 9 feet deep. Store firearms, unloaded, in a locked safe. Store bullets in a separate location.
  • Get rid of clutter to prevent falls. 

Brain Trauma

UT Southwestern offers unparalleled treatment for traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other neurological trauma.

Diagnosis and Treatment

To diagnose a brain injury and determine its severity, we will conduct a physical examination and use other diagnostic tests such as CT or MRI scans of the brain. 

Concussion or mild TBI causes temporary dysfunction of brain cells and requires rest for a full recovery. After their evaluation, patients can usually recover at home, requiring only rest, activities and exercises that are modified based on diagnosis, over-the-counter pain relievers, and close monitoring. If symptoms persist or get worse, or if new symptoms develop, specialized management might be needed.
