Luke fully understands the diagnosis and treatment of TBI and PTSD. Military personnel who have suffered a traumatic brain injury can exhibit a wide range of functional changes affecting thinking, sensation, movement, language and emotions. Some symptoms may appear immediately after the injury while others may not appear for days or weeks. Because of the nature of the injury and the symptoms, sometimes people may not recognize or admit that they have a problem. In post-concussion/mild TBI patients, recovery occurs within weeks or months but a small percentage have persistent symptoms. TBI is often associated with severe multiple trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or undiagnosed concussions.
