One of the leading causes of brain injuries is head trauma.
Many people do not realize they have sustained a brain injury until several days or weeks after a traumatic event, such as a car accident. The symptoms may be subtle at first, but over time, they may progress and become chronic and severe. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is sudden damage to the brain caused by a blow or jolt to the head. Common causes include car or motorcycle crashes, falls, sports injuries, and assaults. Injuries can range from mild concussions to severe permanent brain damage. A traumatic brain injury or post-concussion syndrome (PCS) can cause a variety of cognitive problems and symptoms of psychological trauma such as memory loss, loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, feelings of hopelessness, depression, and anxiety. Immediate or delayed symptoms may include confusion, blurry vision, and concentration difficulty. Infants may cry persistently or become irritable.
TBI TREATMENT MAY INVOLVE REST, MEDICATION, AND SURGERY
Mild traumatic brain injury may affect your brain cells temporarily. More serious traumatic brain injury can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding, and other physical damage to the brain. These injuries can result in long-term complications or death. Often, these types of injuries cause permanent damages that require expensive and long-term care.
