Long-Term Impacts of Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries occur when the head suffers a direct trauma or is suddenly jerked forward and backward or side to side. This can cause bruising and bleeding of the brain or and can disrupt the brain’s ability to communicate with other parts of the body. Concussions are the most common type of traumatic brain injury, affecting between 1.6 and 3.8 million people in the U.S. each year.
Traumatic brain injuries are classified by severity and can be considered either mild, moderate, or severe. However, these classifications refer to the severity of symptoms and not to the potential impact the injury has on a person’s life. All brain injuries should be considered serious as patient outcomes are very difficult predict and can result in permanent symptoms, such as increased risk of depression, seizures, memory problems, changes in personality, and cognitive changes.
Individuals who may have a concussion or other type of brain injury should immediately seek medical attention, as any delay could cause the injury to worsen and increase the chance of serious complications or death. People that sustain direct or indirect head trauma should never delay in seeking medical attention with the hope that their symptoms will go away on their own. Common symptoms of traumatic brain injury include loss of consciousness, nausea, double or blurred vision, confusion, headache, and sensitivity to light and/or sound.
