What are Head Injuries?

Head injuries are injuries involving trauma to the skull, scalp, or brain. The term encompasses a broad variety of trauma that can include everything from scalp wounds to fractures and concussions. Some injuries can break the scalp and skill, while other involve only internal damage. As result, cranial injuries are often difficult to diagnose visually. Experts agree that any potential damage to the head should be treated seriously, to minimize the risk of long-term or permanent harm.

Cranial injuries can involve internal bleeding, concussive effects on the brain, clotting in the skull’s blood vessels, and dangerous skull fractures. Left untreated, these conditions can be potentially debilitating, and symptoms can be difficult to manage. Fortunately, osteopathic care can play a vital role in treating cranial injury symptoms, helping patients to expedite recovery, and facilitating improvement in their quality of life.

What Causes this Condition?

The most common activities responsible for cranial injuries like concussion include contact sports like football, basketball, and soccer, as well as accidents involving recreational vehicles. Other common causes include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Sudden impact to the head
  • Impact elsewhere on the body that results in sufficient force to shake the brain
  • Impact that fractures the skull

What Are the Symptoms of Head Injuries?

While some head trauma may appear mild at first, it is vital to seek medical attention. In many instances, symptoms do not begin immediately. Consult with your medical provider if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Headaches in the aftermath of any impact to the skull
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Vertigo sensations
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Lightheadedness
  • Nausea
  • Double-vision
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Sensitivity to noise and light
  • Disrupted sleep patterns

In addition to those common symptoms of minor head trauma, serious cranial injuries could be accompanied by one or more severe symptoms:

  • Visible fractures in the skull
  • Clear fluid draining from the nose, ears, and mouth
  • Altered pupil size
  • Vomiting
  • Losing consciousness
  • Memory loss
  • Coordination problems, lack of balance, or restlessness
  • Seizures
  • Unexplained mood changes
  • Problems focusing the eyes, or blurred vision
  • A decline in muscle control

Serious injuries to the head should be diagnosed immediately, since many can be potentially debilitating and even life-threatening. And while minor head trauma typically has no long-term consequences, more severe injuries may have lasting impact – especially if they are left untreated.
