Topic - Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury, often referred to as TBI, is most often an acute event similar to other injuries. That is where the similarity between traumatic brain injury and other injuries ends. One moment the person is normal and the next moment life has abruptly changed.  One of the consequences of brain injury is that the person often does not realize that a brain injury has occurred.
