Brain Injury Rehab Florida – The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that more than 2.5 million Americans (children and adults) have sustained a TBI (traumatic brain injury). Moreover, nearly 795,000 people have sustained an acquired brain injury (ABI) from non-traumatic causes. The data is terrifying, especially taking into account all the effects brain injuries have on the injured and their families.
In a previous article, we described in detail the consequences of TBI on an individual’s life, covering cognitive impairment (long- or short-term memory loss, difficulty learning and memorizing new things, short attention span, speech problems, lack of concentration, problems with reading and writing); neurological impairment (difficulty with walking, coordination, or balance; loss of taste, hearing, vision or smell; insomnia; fatigue); behavioral changes (anger, frustration, impatience, reduced self-esteem, impulsivity, anxiety, PTSD, apathy), and finally, lifestyle consequences.
