While most people are familiar with the term “concussion,” did you know that this term refers to only the mildest form of TBI?
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden trauma causes disruption to the normal function of the brain. Such injuries can occur in many ways and significantly affect an individual’s cognitive, physical, and psychological abilities. A TBI can be classified as mild, moderate or severe. Depending on the severity of the injury, one may face health problems that last a few days or the rest of their lives.
TBIs require access to a full continuum of treatment and support provided by clinicians serving on an interdisciplinary care team. Accurate diagnosis, early treatment, and specific instructions on resuming activities by a TBI specialist are essential to improving symptoms and preventing a mild TBI from progressing to more severe stages of brain injury. Kaizen Brain Center is known for its expertise in treating a wide variety of TBIs and provides customized, comprehensive, treatment plans for each and every patient.
