Abstract

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) is a common health condition in amateur and professional sports and in military operations but can occur in everyday life. Dizziness is the most common disorder seen after mTBI followed closely by headache. This article examines the diagnosis and treatment of vestibular disorders after mTBI. Data are included from the literature, and conclusions are drawn from the literature review and the experience of the authors. Much of what is known about this disorder comes from recent military experience, but the link to more common civilian injuries is detailed in this article.
