March 27, 2015: At Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas, physical therapists often see patients who have suffered a mild traumatic brain injury or concussion in the line of duty. Sometimes the concussion is the result of an explosion in combat. Other times, it might be due to a fall or collision during training.
Lt Col Tony Cromer Jr, suffered a concussion due to a more common workplace hazard, when his head was slammed by an opening door. The effects of that workplace accident, including headaches and dizziness, were the same as they often are for soldiers on the battlefield.
In this episode, physical therapist Miriam Hammerle, PT, Cert SMT, and Cromer discuss his injury and treatment.

Hi I'm Kim Nelson-Ingram. Thank you for checking out this episode of The Help Desk.
Think about this: Approximately every 23 seconds in the United States a mild traumatic brain injury (i.e. concussion) occurs as a result of a fall, vehicle related collision, sports injury and other blows or trauma to the head. Very often symptoms from these injuries may appear subtle and unrecognizable by others for weeks, months or even years later.
In the memoir Broken Silence, speech-language pathologist and professional speaker Eudora Pickett Nelson, shares the story of a mild traumatic brain injury she suffered at nine years old but was not medically diagnosed until 50 years later.
On this episode of The Help Desk you'll learn some of the most common symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury and how to take steps toward cognitive improvement.

Joshua Puckett was just minding his business in his own front yard when he was attacked by a "random drunk person" causing his brain injury. Now he says he has a "memory of a fish." Memory problems combined with balance issues, anger, and confusion have become the "new norm" in his new life. But, Joshua is overcoming his deficits by directing his attentions to his art and his music. Both are opening new doors in this talented young man's life.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.
But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!
