Hormonal Effects and Relationship With Traumatic brain Injury

Mark Gordon, M.D. a distinguished physician, began a crusade
years ago talking about the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and
hormonal deficiencies.  He mainly worked
with boxers, martial artists, and retired football players to conduct his
studies concerning hormonal imbalance and its relationship with traumatic brain
injury.  His research also included
military personal that was suffering from “post-traumatic stress
disorder”.  In his vast research, Dr.
Gordon found that many individuals who suffered from traumatic brain injury also
had a hormonal deficiency. 

Whether the trauma was mild, moderate, or severe it still
altered the brain’s ability to regulate the patient’s hormones leading to
increased risk of heart attack, stroke, emotional instability, drug and alcohol
abuse, depression, anxiety, mood swings, memory loss, fatigue, confusion,
amnesia, poor cognition, learning disabilities, decreased communication skills,
poor healing, frequent infections, poor fracture healing, poor skin quality,
increased body fat, decreased muscle strength and size, infertility, and loss
of sex drive. (Dr. Gordon, TBI study). 

 

Dr. Gordon’s methods of treatment, is to provide hormone
replacement therapy to counteract the deficiency caused by the TBI.  This is a ground-breaking method that has not
been completely accepted in the medical community.  However, a recent case trial of Dr. Gordon’s
showed an individual who suffered from TBI due to a hard head collision and
suffered from depression as a side effect. 
The individual had taken a course of anti-depressants to no or little avail.  The course of anti-depressants was taken over
a three-month period.  Dr. Gordon subsequently
commenced hormone replacement therapy. 
The patient was taken off meds and achieved a quality of life that was
previously opined to be improbable.

 

It cannot be denied that hormones and behavioral issues stemming
from traumatic brain injury are somewhat inextricably intertwined.  This new technology could pave the way for
people suffering from TBI as a result of an automobile accident.  At Dolman Law Group, our attorneys constantly
review literature and medical studies in the niche field of traumatic brain
Injury to properly advocate on behalf of our clients who have suffered a closed
