Your brain is your control center, working much like your computer or your phone. And we all know what happens when you drop your computer or your phone. It goes haywire. All of a sudden communicating with loved ones and work, or even checking the score of the Los Angeles Lakers game, becomes impossible.
The same is true for your brain, if they’re injured, except way worse if not devastating. The brain is an incredibly complex system of neurons and cells that makes computers and cell phones look like simple toys.
Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can occur from physical impact to the head or from sudden stops or jolts, even when there is no impact to your head. Common causes of TBI include:
- Vehicular accidents
- Pedestrian versus vehicle accidents
- Worksite falls from height
- Slip and falls
- Trip and falls
- Pool accidents
- Sports and recreational activities
Non-traumatic brain injuries can occur during oxygen deprivation events, such as near drownings, medical malpractice, strokes, infection, and other possible causes.
A brain injury can impact you for the rest of your life, including:
- Loss of movement and control
- Loss of independence
- Inability to hold a job
- Inability to have and hold relationships
- Inability to care for yourself
- Inability to complete tasks and focus
- Irritability and change in personality
