Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury
Over one million people annually in the U.S. suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Brain injuries can result in anything from relatively mild post-concussion symptoms to coma or death.
The term ‘mild’ traumatic brain injury is a term used to characterize what are usually closed head injuries, where the skull is not opened and the brain penetrated. However, the impact of a ‘mild’ brain injury can still have a devastating impact on the lives of its victims, shattering relationships, ending careers and causing distinct changes in personality
Six Signs Of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
- Short-term memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating
- Severe headache
- Changes in speech/vision/taste
- Personality changes
