According to the Mayo Clinic, traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when an external mechanical force causes brain dysfunction. Brain injuries result from violent blows to the head or body. Brain injuries can be mild which cause temporary dysfunction of brain cells. Brain injuries can be serious which result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other damage to the brain.
In the case of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI), sometimes the patient doesn’t realize the extent of the injuries until weeks or months after an accident. Symptoms of traumatic brain injury include, loss of consciousness for seconds or minutes, feeling of being dazed and confused or disoriented, headaches, nausea and vomiting and dizziness or loss of balance.
Even mild dramatic brain injury’s can result in memory or concentration problems, mood changes and depression.
If you are a loved one has suffered an accident that involved a violent blow to the head or TBI, see your doctor then asked to be referred to a traumatic brain injury clinic.
