WHAT IS A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBI)?
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is typically the result of a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. It can also be caused by a penetrating head injury. Essentially, any external force that causes the brain to move within the head can disrupt normal brain function, leading to loss of consciousness, or being dazed and confused.
Among those who serve in the military, explosive blasts are the primary cause for TBIs.
WHO CAN SUFFER FROM A TBI?
A returning Veteran, Service Member, or any person suffering from PTSD due to: blast wave trauma, repetitive gun fire, a motor vehicle accident, a motorcycle accident, a bicycle accident, a slip or fall, a sports-related injury, a martial arts injury, a work related head injury, repetitive surgeries, a stroke, a cerebral hemorrhage, chemotherapeutic medication, exposure to medical / dental radiation, or almost any other trauma to the body.
