BRAIN INJURY

BRAIN INJURY

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 2 million Americans suffer from a brain injury each year. The most common causes of a traumatic brain injury are:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Falls
  • Being struck by an object
  • Amusement park ride malfunction

Long Term Impact of head and brain injuries:

  • Difficulty with memory. Amnesia is a common side effect of head trauma, though not all victims suffer severe memory loss. Aphasia, the inability to remember words, may also occur.
  • Difficulty with language. A severe traumatic brain injury could result in stroke-like symptoms, when it comes to communication. You may forget the names of common objects.
  • Difficulty controlling emotions. In some cases, a severe blow to the head leads to changes in personality. Odd behavior could be a sign of a closed head injury.
