Thanks to doctors with the Brain Injury Research Institute, located right here in Wheeling, brain injuries are getting much more attention after those doctors discovered CTE in the brain of deceased former Pittsburgh Steeler, Mike Webster. As a result, brain injuries are being more thoroughly researched, brain injury treatment is improving, and there is better prevention now that brain injury causes and their impacts are better understood.
Unlike non-traumatic brain injuries caused by things such as stroke or seizure, traumatic brain injuries are generally caused by a blow or jolt to the head. Brain injuries can be mild and disrupt the regular function of the brain for a very short time. Mild concussions would fall into this category and generally people recover fully and quickly in these cases. On the other end, severe brain injuries can cause long-term brain function disruptions or even death. It is reported that traumatic brain injuries contribute to 30% of all injury related deaths.
