March is Brain Injury Awareness Month

Traumatic brain injuryBrain injuries are a very serious medical condition. Traumatic brain injuries, commonly referred to as TBI, change the lives of victims as well as their loved ones. The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) estimates that between 3.2 and 5.3 million Americans live with long-term disabilities resulting from TBI. In fact, this number could be conservative since most individuals do not seek treatment for head injuries.

The BIAA has taken steps towards raising awareness of facts associated with brain injuries. March marks the beginning of Brain Injury Awareness Month. The theme for the 2018-2019 campaign is Change Your Mind. The goal is to educate the general public about the “incidence of brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families” in order to:

• De-stigmatize brain injury through outreach within the brain injury community
• Empower those who have survived brain injury and their caregivers
• Promote the many types of support that are available to people living with brain injury

Learn the Basics of TBI

Traumatic brain injury is the leading cause of disability and death in children and young adults worldwide. But what causes TBI? Most people believe that traumatic brain injury only happen in a head-on car accident, or similar high-magnitude, high-force event. But in fact:

• Falls are an extremely common cause of traumatic brain injuries
• Pedestrian and bicycle accidents can also cause TBI – especially when bicyclists do not wear helmets
• Gunshot wounds, domestic violence, and child abuse are common causes of TBI
• Sports injuries are common causes of TBI – especially high-impact sports such as, Lacrosse, soccer, football, skateboarding
• Combat injuries and explosions are the primary cause of TBI in veterans

Brain Injury Can Be Difficult to Diagnose

Not all cases of brain injury display easily detectable signs and symptoms for the victim. Unless you have suffered a major traumatic brain injury, the symptoms may not be immediately apparent. As such, it is imperative that you or your loved ones keep a close eye for possible signs of a TBI, especially after a blunt for trauma or a serious accident.
Common signs or symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include:

• Headache.
• Confusion.
• Lightheadedness.
• Dizziness.
• Blurred vision.
• Ringing in the ears.
• Tiredness or sleepiness.
• A bad taste in the mouth.
