Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Medical professionals define TBI as brain damage suffered because of a sudden physical force or impact. Concussions are considered brain injuries.
It is a common misconception that TBI only occurs at the time of an accident. If there is bleeding in the brain or other brain damage, TBI can worsen, or become more apparent over time. Symptoms can range from mild, like from a concussion, to severe limitations of cognitive function. Because TBI usually cannot be reversed, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention.
