Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

What is Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic Brain Injury refers to an acquired injury to the brain. The condition often results from an accident - motor vehicle, bicycle, fall, explosion, etc.

What Are the Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury?

The injury may result in a temporary, mild loss of attention skills, headache and mood symptoms. Some injuries may result in a more severe and permanent change in areas of motor skills, mood, motivation, pain and personality.

The range of mild to severe brain injury is often misleading. Even a mild injury that does not cause motor paralysis or severe memory loss may indeed impair the ability to function at one's job, in a relationship, and to live life at the same level that one is accustomed to. This results in a broad range of symptoms and difficulties spanning changes in mood, drive, self fulfillment, concentration and stamina.
