Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) involve one of the most important and complex systems in the human body. An individual can suffer a traumatic brain injury from a car accident, construction accident, or even a fall.

TBI's: The Invisible-Injury That Is Very Real

When someone breaks an arm or a leg, it is easy to see the cast (perhaps signed by well-wishers), the crutches (hopefully padded), and the basic difficulties experienced by the person in trying to walk or grasp things as they once did. But there are common injuries that do not always have such outwardly visible characteristics. Yet their existence is just as, if not more so, real for those who experience them.

The Impact and Concerns of Traumatic Brain and Head Injuries

Accidental falls have always been a cause for concern. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), nearly 20% of falls result in some type of injury. In the United States, accidental falls are the most common cause of nonfatal injuries in people over the age of 65. Additionally, three million older patients are treated in the ER for falls, and 800,000 patients are hospitalized for falls each year. Major efforts have been taken to prevent these accidental falls from occurring.

Head Trauma and Concussions

Concussions happen often and are frequently overlooked as just a simple head impact. Some concussions result even when a person's head is not struck directly but experience a significant blow to the body that causes the head to snap back and forth. What many people do not realize is that a concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). A traumatic brain injury is a serious health condition and can be extremely dangerous if not treated properly. Utmost care and medical treatment should be sought out if a person believes they have any type of brain injury.
