Brain Injuries or closed head injuries affect over 2 million people a year in the United States. Often referred to as the “Silent Injury”, Traumatic Brain Injuries, while devastating, and life-changing, are always not obvious and occasionally go undetected.
The brain is one of your body’s most delicate organs, which is why something that may at first seem like a minor trauma, can become a life changing injury. Automobile and motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, and recreational sports accidents can all cause traumatic brain injuries, resulting in devastating and permanent damage.
Additionally, those suffering from Traumatic Brain Injuries, are at an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other brain disorders that occur as one ages.
A Traumatic Brain Injury is not always the result of an accident where you lose consciousness or hit your head.
Think “Shaken Baby Syndrome”. Even mild brain injuries can cause impaired reasoning, thinking and behavioral changes, drastically impacting your ability to enjoy life or work.
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may include:
