Traumatic Brain Injuries Can Have Serious Consequences

By Kelly Balamuth on March 27, 2012

Oakland TBI Accident EffectsMarch is Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month. Since traumatic brain injuries like concussions can happen to people of any age and in any kind of accident, it’s important for everyone to be aware of the risks and signs of concussions and other traumatic brain injuries. Prompt treatment is crucial to healing.

It’s especially important to watch for signs of behavior changes or other symptoms in children, as they may not realize that their behavior has changed or that they feel any differently. Symptoms of concussion include dizziness, nausea, vomiting, changes in mood or behavior, excessive sleepiness, memory loss, inability to concentrate, and feeling or acting “dazed” or “foggy,” according to physicians.

The sooner a concussion is diagnosed, the sooner the injured person can be treated and protected from further injury, which increases the chances of a full or near-full recovery. While the most serious traumatic brain injuries can cause death or permanent disability, most people can recover from a mild concussion with few or no long-term effects, as long as they are protected from re-injury during the entire healing period – which can take weeks or even months. Regular visits with a qualified physician are crucial to making the best possible recovery.
