Traumatic brain injury is a major cause of death and disability in the United States. The last effects of Traumatic Brain Injury can include impaired thinking, memory loss, restricted movement, tingling sensations, and erratic emotional behavior including personality changes, depression and more. These issues not only affect individuals but can have lasting effects on families and communities.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. TBI can range from mild; including brief changes in mental states or consciousness, to severe; including brief or extended periods of unconsciousness or memory loss after the injury.)
Among the many lifestyle changes that can result from TBI, many patients require a lot more rest than they are used to. Physical fatigue, as well as brain fatigue, is a common obstacle for people who have suffered a TBI.
Physical symptoms of brain injury include:
- Difficulty coordinating balance
- Blurred vision in one or both eyes
- Milder vision problems
Functional/Emotional Changes can inlude:
- Personality changes
- Difficulty forming sentences or choosing vocabulary
- Trouble communicating
- Difficulty with reason, focus and logic
People suffering TBI also report fluctuations in stamina, despite looking completely normal on the outside. Crowds, confusion, and loud sounds can quickly overload people who have suffered a TBI. The brain may not filter experiences and sounds as effectively as it did before the TBI.
Here’s the good news: most people do make a significant recovery from TBI.
Brain injury rehabilitation can take a very long time. Recovery is usually measured in years, not weeks or months. Recovery can continue long after formal rehabilitation has ended. Let the doctors and specialists at Regional Medical Group help.
