According to the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders, millions of people each year in the United States suffer from traumatic brain injuries. A serious head or brain injury also known as traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused from a blow, bump, or other head jolting events that can damage the overall function of the brain. Traumatic brain injuries are often referred to as the silent epidemic due to the not so obvious symptoms victims face. Most victims can appear normal, speak well, and don’t always display distinct signs of brain damage. However, TBI can interrupt the flow of messages to other parts of the body and can cause harm to physical, mental, behavioral, emotional, and social functions that make performing everyday activities difficult to near impossible.
