Traumatic brain injuries are known to cause various debilitating effects on the body that can impair its function. A TBI damages the nerve cells in the brain, disrupting neural pathways that serve as communication lines to and from the body.
As a result, patients tend to experience mild to severe impairment in physical abilities, such as mobility, muscle strength, coordination, balance, and muscle control. Severe effects and complications may also manifest in the form of a stroke, paralysis, or seizures.
There are also less common effects of a TBI that are often overlooked but still equally debilitating. One example is its physical consequences on the upper limbs, such as the arms, hands, and fingers.
Below is a review of the different hand conditions caused by TBI and ways how to treat and rehabilitate these conditions.
