Traumatic brain injury treatment

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY TREATMENT(TBI)

Traumatic brain injury caused by motor vehicle accidents, falls, acts of violence, or sports injuries are few of the common causes of brain injury. Children, older adolescents/young adults (less than 25 years old), and older adults are most at risk for experiencing TBI. Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can be mild, moderate or severe, depending on the extent of damage to the brain. Mild cases may result in a brief change in mental state or consciousness, while severe cases may result in extended periods of unconsciousness, coma or even death.There are many different kinds of Traumatic Brain Injury Treatments available. Initial Treatment stabilizes the individual immediately following a traumatic brain injury. Rehabilitative Care Center Treatment helps restore the patient to daily life.
