A traumatic brain injury, often referred to as TBI, is a complex injury with a wide spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. It often occurs when the brain is driven into the side of the skull due to an abrupt impact or through the force of shaking (such as whiplash). Since our brain defines who we are, there can be severe consequences from a brain injury as it can affect all aspects of our lives, including our personalities.
Brain injuries do not heal like most other injuries. In the case of a broken limb, the injury limits the use of a particular part of your body, while your personality and mental abilities remain unaffected. The majority of time, injuries like these result in the body structure healing and regaining its previous function. Brain injuries are different, where no two brain injuries are alike and may have drastically different consequences. Because of this, brain injuries are often referred to as “invisible injuries”, since a person who suffers from a traumatic brain injury may seem normal to onlookers, when, in actuality, the injury has catastrophic impact on the individual’s quality of life.
A traumatic brain injury can affect every aspect of your life, including your ability to work and care for your family as well as yourself.
