Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, refers to a blow or jolt to the brain that disrupts its normal function. These injuries can range from minor, like a concussion, to severe. According to The Center for Disease Control, each year about 1.7 billion traumatic injuries occur. Of these injuries, about 50,000 of them result in death. Even if a traumatic brain injury isn’t fatal, it can lead to impaired memory, damaged vision, personality changes, and many more devastating effects.
And while the injury may occur in a split second, the damage can last a lifetime. There is no cure for a traumatic brain injury, so prevention is key. In order to stay safe and remain vigilant, here’s a list of the most common causes of traumatic brain injury.
