Mild brain injuries are typically treated with rest and over-the-counter pain relievers to ease your headaches. Still, friends or family members should check on you to make sure your symptoms are not getting worse. Your doctor will let you know when it’s safe to get back to your normal activities.
Moderate or severe brain injury usually requires intensive care. Your doctors will keep track of you and may prescribe medications to limit additional brain damage. If you have severe brain damage, you could need emergency surgery. It can take time to fully heal from these types of brain injuries, but brain rehabilitation therapy can help you get back to feeling like yourself.
