Brain Injury News

A brain injury refers to any damage to the brain that impairs its functions, typically caused by external physical force, such as a blow to the head, a fall, or a car accident. Brain injuries can be classified as traumatic (TBI) or non-traumatic, the latter resulting from internal factors like stroke, tumors, or infections. Symptoms of brain injury can vary widely depending on the severity and location of the damage and can range from mild, such as headaches and temporary confusion, to severe, such as prolonged unconsciousness, cognitive impairments, and permanent disability. Treatment also varies and may include medication, surgery, and various forms of therapy to manage symptoms and facilitate recovery. Long-term recovery may involve rehabilitation programs that help individuals regain motor skills and cognitive functions to improve their quality of life.
