When the brain experiences physical trauma — whether through a fall, collision, violence, pressure, or sports injuries — an injury known as a traumatic brain injury occurs. Symptoms depend on the amount of damage to the brain. Mild TBIs, or concussions, cause temporary dysfunctions like dizziness and memory problems. More severe TBIs may cause altered consciousness, seizures, infections, nerve damage, loss of coordination and control of bodily functions, cognitive and communication problems, and behavioral and emotional issues. Depending on the severity of TBI, traumatic brain injury treatments and rehabilitation can help some patients regain their functionality.
