What is a traumatic brain injury?
A traumatic brain injury is an all too common injury that results when brain tissue is damaged by the traumatic motion of the head, often in a back and forth motion when involved in a car crash or when the head strikes pavement. The most severe brain injuries can involve a fractured skull and obvious bleeding within the brain while other serious brain injuries can involve diffuse microscopic tearing of essential connections with the brain. All of these injuries can be devastating for the injured person and their family.
