A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when the brain suffers a temporary or permanent neurological dysfunction due to an accident. A brain injury is up to 10 times more common than a spine injury, according to recent studies1. The number of people suffering from traumatic brain injury is underestimated as they are often misdiagnosed or classified incorrectly. Add to that the fact that some patients don’t report mild injuries and it becomes clearer that the number of patients with traumatic brain injuries can be quite high. In 2010, the last year with reported data, approximately 2.5 million people sustained a traumatic brain injury2. Moreover, it is estimated that TBI is the cause of 30% of injury-related deaths in the US. Most brain injuries follow motor-vehicle accidents, falls or assaults and are more common among men than women, with the difference being associated with risk-taking behavior. In this article, we will take a look at the types of TBIs, as well as some of the rehabilitation and treatment options available for patients at NeuLife Rehab.
