Traumatic Brain Injuries
These Types Of Injures Often Result In Permanent Damage
Our brains control every action our bodies take, from commanding the muscles in your fingers to tie up your shoelaces to making sure that our lungs keep cycling air even when we do not realize that it’s happening. Despite protection from our skulls, our brains are incredibly fragile. Sometimes, slight bumps can cause complications that impede our ability to function, and more severe impacts can cause serious and potentially irreversible damage. The most severe of these injures, known as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), can permanently affect the signals our brains send out and change the way we function, interact with, and perceive the world.
