Dealing with a Brain Injury
Posted on Wednesday, June 21st, 2023 at 2:08 pm
Our brain is “command central” for our entire body. Most of us aren’t even fully aware of the full scope of all that our brain does until there’s an injury that impedes its function. One of the most debilitating injuries suffered in accidents is a traumatic brain injury (TBI) which is usually the result of a severe impact to the head from an external object or an object that pierces the skull. Another form of brain injury—acquired brain injury (ABI)—occurs due to internal factors such as lack of oxygen or pathology, which can result from exposure to toxins.
Effects of Brain Injuries
Since the brain’s function extends to the entire body, the consequences of brain damage can be seen in various ways. Impairment and the symptoms manifested due to a brain injury can be broken down into three categories:
- Memory loss
- Issues communicating
- Slowed ability to process information
- Trouble concentrating
- Mood swings
- Temper outbursts
- Impulsive behavior
- Loss of bowel or bladder control
- Impaired mobility
- Muscle spasticity
