Approximately 1.5 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury every year. 80, 000 Americans experience the onset of long-term disability as a result following traumatic brain injury each year. Those who survive a traumatic brain injury begin a life-long journey of adaptation to their loss of function and disability.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), closed head injury, concussion, or post concussion syndrome are all terms synonymous with acquired injury to the brain. Any incident with or without skull fracture that produces an external physical force that produces a diminished or altered state of consciousness can produce a brain injury.

The most common causes of traumatic brain injury are vehicle crashes, falls, sports injuries, and violence. Other acquired brain injuries can be caused by medical events such as hypoxia or anoxia (loss of oxygen to the brain), aneurysms, infections to the brain, tumors, or stroke.

The outcomes of acquired brain injury are unique to the individual and the severity of the trauma. A severe brain injury can leave an individual in a permanently altered state of consciousness. A moderate to severe brain injury can cause physical, cognitive, and/or behavioral/emotional impairment. Even a mild brain injury can lead to “post-concussion” syndrome, a cluster of symptoms evidenced by fatigue, dizziness, slowed mental functioning, and headaches that last for months, even years, with varying amount of severity. For some people a brain injury can be temporary, others suffer permanent partial or total functional impairment.

The impact of Traumatic Brain Injury is all-encompassing; affecting not only the individual but the family, close friends and other social networks. Roles and relationships undergo profound changes, with the spouse often assuming the role of caregiver and breadwinner. The financial impact can often be devastating.
