Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

What is Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a brain injury resulting from a strike or injury to the head that disturbs brain function. Brain damage can range from a quick loss of consciousness to severe permanent disability. A TBI can cause short or long-term neurological and psychological problems for the brain injury victim.

A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) leaves a person with considerable problems in physical functioning, socializing, and cognition. TBI has less well-known physical symptoms that can include attention deficits, bladder and bowel incontinence, aggression, and other issues.

More than 1.4 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the United States every year, according to the Brain Injury Association of America. Of those, 50,000 brain injury victims die and 235,000 are hospitalized.

TBI behavioral symptoms include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Frustration
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Indifference
  • Lack of emotional control
  • Memory loss
