Traumatic brain injury is caused by an impact to the head that interferes with the normal functioning of the brain. This can affect the mental abilities of a person such as thinking and learning.
Falls are responsible for the majority of traumatic brain injury incidences for people of all ages. However, people aged 75 and above top the list of those hospitalized with these kinds of injuries to the brain and at times, deaths have also been reported.
Types of traumatic brain injuries:
According to doctors, a traumatic brain injury can be classified as mild, moderate or severe. These depend on whether the damage causes unconsciousness, the period the unconsciousness lasts and the magnitude of the symptoms. Even though most traumatic brain injuries are categorized as mild, they can have grave and long-term effects on a person.
