Frequently Asked Questions:
All brain injuries are known as acquired brain injuries. Traumatic and non-traumatic gained brain damage are the two forms of acquired brain injury. An external force causes a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which is defined as a change in brain function or other symptoms of brain pathology.
Concussions are a minor form of TBI. Mild types, create transitory symptoms that normally fade away a few days or weeks after the injury. The most severe TBIs can result in irreversible brain damage, coma, or death.
The vast majority of recovery from a catastrophic brain injury occurs within the first two years of injury; after that, the brain-injured patient faces an uncertain future. Further improvement is reported in some patients even 5-10 years after the damage.
TBI symptoms frequently develop and worsen. Worsening symptoms can last for months or years following a brain injury and have a significant impact on quality of life. Traumatic brain damage can put you at risk for behavioral issues and nervous system diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
