Traumatic Brain Injury

A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain which occurs as a result of a physical impact to the head or body. Following the initial impact the brain moves within the skull and can hit the opposite side of the skull from where the initial injury took place. The brain can also rotate within the skull causing further damage and loss of brain function.

As such a TBI can dramatically change the lives of both the patient involved and the people around them. Here you will find information to help you understand Traumatic Brain Injury, what happens to the brain when it’s injured, explanation of  the symptoms which patients may suffer, and more.
