Facts and Figures About Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Brain injury can also be caused by disease and birth defects.

The severity of a TBI may range from a mild injury involving a brief change in mental status to a severe injury with an extended period of unconsciousness followed by lasting deficits.

Most of the TBIs that occur every year are mild, and are commonly called concussions. But a severe TBI is a disabling injury requiring treatment with medication as well as ongoing physical and psychological therapy.
