Brain tissue can be damaged from a variety of things, but it’s those from an external force that result in Traumatic Brain Injury. TBI remains to this day the number one cause of death and disability in people under the age of 40. Penetrating head injury or a blow to the head can result in bruised brain tissue or bleeding inside the brain.
Types of TBI include:
- Penetration of sharp object or gunshot
- Blast injury
- Assault or falling
- Auto accidents
With a head injury, you may experience a number of secondary symptoms as well, which may improve but could worsen over time.
- Loss of consciousness
