Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, affects an estimated 1.7 million Americans per year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A diagnosis of a TBI includes a wide range of short- and long-term impairments in physical, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral areas, depending on the severity of the injury, location on the head, and extent of trauma.
A TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. TBIs can range from slight to severe and have both temporary and lifelong effects.
