A new breakthrough in the treatment of Traumatic Brain Injuries has been announced with the use of LED lights. Scientists from Boston University, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard-MIT conducted a study which showed that light emitting diodes, or LED lights, have a beneficial effect on people suffering from traumatic brain injuries.
The study was conducted by placing these LED lights on the heads of patients’ suffering from a traumatic brain injury. They found that the use of the LED light therapy enhanced cognitive function and attention capability.
Many of the patients showed marked positive results within just a few weeks after starting the LED therapy. These findings mark a promising future for the treatment of these complex injuries. Until recently, development in the field of traumatic brain injuries has been fairly limited.
Ohio brain injury attorneys see these types of injuries oftentimes after an automobile accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or workplace injury. Symptoms of a brain injury can differ depending on the severity of the injury. The symptoms of a mild brain injury may include headaches, nausea, dizziness, visual disturbances, or mood swings like irritability or depression. In a moderate brain injury a person may experience loss of consciousness, confusion, forgetfulness, disorientation, and behavioral changes. A person who suffers from a severe brain injury may be in a coma or a vegetative state. In the worst cases, a severe brain injury can result in death.
Too often these types of injuries are preventable or caused by the carelessness of someone else. The families of brain injury victims should seek out the guidance of an experienced brain injury attorney to wade through the legal complexities that come with these types of injuries.
