What is a Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI?

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a type of brain injury that occurs as a result of a direct physical force to the head or body, causing the head or neck to move suddenly and the brain to move within the skull. Common causes of TBIs include falls, assaults, workplace or motor vehicle accidents and hits to the head or body during sports. A common TBI is a concussion, which is an injury that temporarily affects your normal brain function following a knock to the head or body. Find out more about TBIs and concussions today.
