Dealing with a brain injury can be very confusing, difficult and emotional.
Head injuries like skull fractures are visible, but closed-head injuries can be hard to recognize and diagnose.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the result of a sudden trauma causing damage to the brain.
Most TBIs are caused by motor vehicle crashes, blunt force trauma, hard hits, or falls. Other common causes are medical errors or unnecessary sports injuries. TBI can lead to:
- Cognitive problems;
- Memory issues;
- Difficulty concentrating;
- Headaches and fatigue;
- Behavioral or personality changes;
- Vascular damage or strokes; or
- Long-term or permanent disability.
Every injury to the brain is serious.
Seemingly minor brain injuries, even those referred to as concussions, can have long-term consequences. Proper diagnosis and treatment are essential.
