This case report illustrates the improvement of an acupuncture-treated patient
who incurred a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) from a snowboarding accident.
Over 4 years, the patient progressed from initially not being able to walk,
having difficulty with speech, and suffering from poor eyesight to where he has
now regained significant motor function, speech, and vision and has returned to
snowboarding. A core acupuncture protocol plus specific points added to address
the patient's ongoing concerns was used. This case adds to the medical literature
by demonstrating the potential role of acupuncture in TBI treatment.
