Traumatic Brain Injury

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) refers to a blow to the head that disrupts regular cognitive functions. This jolt to the head can range from a light bump that causes mild and short-term damage, to a serious blow that can handicap someone for life. Unfortunately, TBIs are common throughout the United States, as emergency rooms and hospitals see hundreds of thousands – and sometimes millions – of TBI cases each year.

Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by just about anything; again, all that needs to happen is a blow to the head. Two of the most common causes of TBIs, though, are car accidents and severe sports injuries, such as concussions. Because TBIs vary widely in severity, symptoms can vary widely as well. The most common symptoms, though, can be broken down into three categories:


Cognitive-Related Symptoms

such as trouble speaking or understanding conversations, mental confusion, trouble concentrating, and more.


Behavioral-Related Symptoms

such as lack of restraint, aggression, anger issues, and more.


Other Symptoms

such as fatigue, dizziness, loneliness, and more.
