Through my thesis, I plan on showing that future research is needed as this is a rapidly evolving field. We are continually finding out new information on how the brain reacts to trauma both immediately following an injury as well as long term. Along with this we also are discovering new treatment methods. My hope would be that we could discover more non-pharmaceutical methods of treatment of TBI’s in both the short term and long term. I personally have suffered numerous TBI’s from wrestling professionally and suffer through many of the symptoms I will discuss. If my thesis helps even one other person not experience what I am now suffering from, then my thesis would be a success.
