Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can be caused by a jolt, bump, jolt, or penetration to the head that disrupts the brain’s normal function. Severity of an injury of this nature ranges from mild to severe. TBI-related emergency room visits have increased steadily in recent years, and TBI accounts for nearly a third of injury-related deaths each year in the United States. TBI can result in permanent mental and physical disability and emotional dysfunction. Potential effects of TBI include memory problems, headaches, vision issues, difficulty reading, concentration, or with word usage, changes in behavior, and issues with rage and managing emotions or behavior. Even people with mild brain injuries or concussions often report difficulty focusing, interruptions in through process, and memory retention issues.

Every traumatic brain injury, mild or severe, can have a profound, life-changing impact – for both the patient and their support network.

Approximately 1.5 million Americans are involved in accidents that cause traumatic brain injury each year. Motor vehicle, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents account for a large percentage of these injuries. Athletes and members of the military commonly suffer traumatic brain injuries as well.
