Diagnosis and Treatment of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI)
Incidence of mTBI has become increasingly detectable with advances in technology and clinical assessment. This paper reviews basic clinical examination, treatment considerations for common neurobehavioral manifestations of mTBI, and techniques shown effective in managing neuropsychological symptoms. Predictable patterns of psychological maladjustment that may exacerbate morbidity are introduced. The author discusses integration of psychotherapeutic methods with cognitive rehabilitation, physiologic recording, mindfulness, and self-management to optimize outcome.
