Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can result from many types of trauma to the head, some not requiring direct impact. It may or may not involve loss of consciousness. Symptoms can include dizziness, headaches, nausea, memory loss, forgetfulness, behavioral changes, irritability, sensitivity to light or sound, depression, anxiety and cognitive problems and delays. Despite the fact that there is often no outward, physical sign of injury, TBIs can drastically effect an individual’s life and his or her relationship with family and friends, especially when appropriate treatment is not received.
Common descriptions of TBI include head injury, concussion, closed-head injury, coup-contrecoup, diffuse axonal injury and contusion.
