Research is Discovering New Ways to Treat the Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic Brain Injury Research
As the understanding of a Traumatic Brain Injury has grown, so has the ability to identify a person who has suffered one. We’ve come to understand that you don’t have to suffer a dramatic event to have suffered a TBI. A TBI is basically a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. TBIs of all degrees can cause impaired physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability in the United States. Every year there are around 3 million TBI-related emergency department (ED) visits, hospitalizations, and deaths. Nearly 150 Americans die from TBI-related injuries each day. Those who survive a TBI can face effects that last a few days, or the rest of their lives.
Research is discovering new ways to treat the effects of a TBI which can mean positive life altering treatment for our clients.
