What is TBI?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a type of injury that occurs when there is a sudden jolt or blow to the head, causing damage to the brain. TBIs can range from mild to severe, and they can cause a wide range of symptoms, depending on the extent of the injury. A traumatic brain injury, TBI, is a serious condition that can cause permanent disability or even death. In this type of injury, the normal function of your brain is disrupted, common with direct head injuries, car accidents, and sports participation. Explosive blasts and combat injuries also account for a significant number of TBIs in military personnel.
As a result of a brain injury, you can experience short-term or long-term issues affecting your:
- Motor function
- Sense of touch
Traumatic brain injuries can also cause a variety of emotional or behavioral issues, such as aggression, impulse control problems, changes in your personality, depression and anxiety. Symptoms of a TBI can vary widely, depending on the severity of the injury and the location of the damage in the brain.
Common symptoms include:
More serious symptoms can include:
- Difficulty speaking or understanding language
- Loss of consciousness
It is extremely important for individuals with a TBI to seek help from a mental health professional as soon as possible to get the proper diagnosis and treatment plan that works for them.
How are Traumatic Brain Injuries Classified?
Mild TBIs include head injuries causing confusion or a loss of consciousness for less than 30 minutes. These types of injuries include concussions, which are the most common types of TBI that occur from falls or sports. Rest is an important factor in recovery from a mild TBI, allowing the brain time to heal and return to normal function.
In moderate to severe TBIs, you experience a loss of consciousness for longer than 30 minutes. As a result of this type of head injury, permanent nerve damage can develop causing a disability or life-long health complications.
