Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) are caused by a violent force or blow to the head. The most common type of TBI’s are sports related concussions. However, TBI can occur with any strong impact to the brain, such as after a fall, a jolt or violent shaking. The resulting brain dysfunction from TBI can vary widely, but most concussions are temporary and can include such symptoms as headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance and coordination. Some concussions cause you to lose consciousness, but most do not.
It is extremely important to monitor someone who has experienced a blow to the head. Look out for these symptoms and if they persist contact your physician.
