Patient Story: Carol Dillard
Carol Dillard was treated at Texoma Medical Center after suffering a stroke.
Head injuries are common causes of disability and death in adults. The skull protects your brain from most minor bangs and bumps, but severe head injuries can occur from falls, motor vehicle accidents, and sports injuries. During this type of event, the brain moves inside the skull causing bleeding, tearing of tissues and swelling.
Common head injuries include skull fractures, concussions (short loss of normal brain function) and traumatic brain injury that causes moderate to severe damage to the brain.
Epilepsy is a neurological condition of the brain that can make people more susceptible to having recurrent unprovoked seizures, which are the result of abnormal brain activity. Symptoms of epilepsy can include strange behavior, violent muscle spasms or loss of consciousness.
While there is no cure for epilepsy, medicines can help control seizures. In some cases, surgery or implanted devices can also assist with seizure control.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a major causes of neurological disability that affects the brain and spinal cord. Patients with MS suffer from multiple symptoms involving the motor, sensory, visual and cerebellar systems. Fatigue, behavioral health symptoms and cognitive health symptoms are recognized as serious symptoms of the MS syndrome. There is no cure for MS, but medicines may slow it down and help control symptoms. Physical and occupational therapy may also help.
Parkinson's disease is a nervous system disorder that affects movement and gradually takes away motor abilities. It is caused when nerve cells in the brain do not produce enough dopamine. Those with Parkinson’s can have varied symptoms including tremors, difficulty walking, rigid limbs and a lack of balance. Sometimes, patients also lose facial expressiveness and struggle with clear speech. There is no cure, but medications can sometimes reduce symptoms. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) can help severe cases. With DBS, electrodes are surgically implanted in the brain. They send electrical pulses to stimulate the parts of the brain that control movement.
