Abstract


Traumatic brain injury, which can be caused by head trauma, can damage the brain, resulting in physical disorders, such as headache, dizziness, and nausea, as well as mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, memory loss, and personality changes that reduce a person’s quality of life. Therefore, it is important to administer the best treatment at the right time. A 57-year-old patient complained of headache and depression after intracranical hemorrhage caused by a traffic accident. These symptoms are considered to be after effects of brain trauma due to increased pressure on the brain. Herbal medicine was prescribed to release internal brain pressure and acupuncture was applied to ease frontal and occipital head muscle tension. Objective scales were conducted at baseline, and at one month, two months, and four months. It was observed that the degree of headache and depression improved after treatment. This study is meaningful in that it found that Korean medicine treatments help alleviate the after effects of traumatic brain injury.
