Almost two million individuals experience minor traumatic brain injury (MTBI/MATBI) each year. Patients from all over the country have similar - even identical - complaints from comparable types of trauma. Unfortunately, the vast majority of medical professionals do not recognize or understand the appearance, etiology, or problems associated with MTBI.
Therefore, MTBI patients are often refused diagnosis and treatment. They regularly face insurance problems and legal battles that compound their struggle with the injury itself. Now, there is a resource to help fight the underservice, underdiagnosis, and misunderstanding of MTBI and to help patients recover and thrive in its wake.
Based on valuable clinical experience, Minor Traumatic Brain Injury Handbook gives a two-part overview filled with detailed information that is easily understood and applied. The first part reviews the pathophysiology, diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, and associated clinical and behavioral problems. It includes case studies and "bottom line" points that underscore the most pressing concerns of MTBI. Part Two creates a more complete understanding of specialized diagnostic and rehabilitation techniques through clinical data from the practitioners who actually diagnose and treat MTBI. Together, these parts offer precious insight into this valid - and potentially devastating - diagnosis.
