Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries occur when sudden trauma, such as a violent blow or jolt to the head, causes brain damage.

Brachial Plexus Injury
The brachial plexus is a bundle of nerves that originate at the spinal cord near the neck. These nerves innervate your shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist providing feeling and movement.

Spinal Cord Injury
Injuries at work place are very common and may be debilitating. Global statistics report that around 260 million non-fatal injuries occur every year around the world of which 350,000 cases may suffer death. Workplace injuries often occur because of high-risk jobs, lack of or scarcity in safety devices, lack of training and higher numbers of manual workers.

Burr Holes for Haematoma
A subdural hematoma is bleeding and collection of blood under the dura (outermost protective covering of the brain) as a result of severe injury to the head. The hematoma compresses the surrounding brain tissue causing many neurological symptoms and can even be life-threatening. The condition may sometimes resolve on its own but in severe cases a surgery called burr hole drainage is performed to remove the blood or clot and relieve the pressure on the brain, preventing brain damage.

Neurofibromatosis is an inherited disorder characterised by the formation of tumours on nerve tissue as a result of a disturbance in cell growth. Any part of your nervous system may be involved. The tumours are usually benign and can form in children to young adults. Symptoms depend on the nerves that the tumours compress, and may include loss of motor or sensory function.

Whiplash is a soft tissue injury to the neck, usually caused by sudden forceful jerk commonly occurring as a result of an automobile accident, sports injuries, or an accidental fall. Sometimes whiplash may also be referred to as neck strain, neck sprain or hyperextension injury.
