Recognizing a Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious condition that can have life altering consequences. However, a person who suffers a traumatic brain injury may not realize the extent of the injury right away, causing the condition to go untreated until the symptoms get worse.

Traumatic brain injuries can result from an accident where a person sustains a forceful blow to the head. It is not uncommon for the trauma to include a whiplash effect to the head and loss of consciousness. This can occur in a car accident, during military action, as a result of a slip and fall, because of a sports injury or many other types of accidents. While not every concussion results in a traumatic brain injury, the following symptoms may indicate a serious injury if they continue to persist;

  • Headaches
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Confusion
  • Blurry vision
  • Increased sensitivity to sound and light
  • Numbness or weakness in the arms or legs
  • Nausea
  • Processing delays
  • Depression
  • Mood changes and emotional imbalance

It is important to immediately seek medical care if there are any signs of a serious head injury. Some traumatic brain injuries are more severe and can even result in death. It is also advisable to take preventative measures such as wearing your seatbelt when riding in the car, and wearing a helmet when riding a bicycle or motorcycle. Those participating in sporting activities should also be sure to wear the appropriate protective gear.
