Brain Injuries Archives

How can a brain injury impact you?

The way individuals react to brain injuries varies significantly. Some people have few symptoms and recover quickly, while others struggle with a lifetime of injury-related concerns. No two people are alike, making it harder to provide treatment options based on typical concerns. No brain injury is typical.

The 2 primary categories of brain injury

When you think of paralysis and severe disabilities, you usually think about spinal cord damage; however, brain damage can result in severe and permanent disabilities too. These life-long disabilities can result in people not being able to earn a living or care for themselves. As such, they'll also result in astronomical costs related to medical treatments, in-home care services and general living expenses.

Information to give your doctor after a traumatic brain injury

A traumatic brain injury is not always easy to diagnose. Patients frequently don't exhibit outward signs of an injury, and if they don't provide the right kind of information to their physicians, the medical provider might not issue the appropriate diagnosis. This could lead to the patient not receiving the right kind of treatment for his or her injuries.

What's the medical definition of a brain injury?

Brain injuries are common following car accidents, which involve strong centripetal forces. When a vehicle gets into a collision, any bodies inside the vehicle will continue to move forward at the same rate of speed until something inside the car stops them. That could be a seat belt, the roof of the car or the dashboard. The body could get ejected from the vehicle out one of the windows. This action of stopping the body quickly -- no matter how it stops -- can result in traumatic brain injuries (TBI).

Does aging have an impact on brain injuries?

One difficulty of brain injuries, particularly among youth, is that as individuals grow and age, they impact victims in unknown ways. Initially, when a child has a brain injury, it may not significantly impact his or her day-to-day life due to his or her parents being present to care for him or her. Later in life, when the individual has to live independently, the brain injury's symptoms could turn out to be significant enough to impact daily life.
