Head injuries can really change a person’s life. According to the CDC, over 1.5 million people the United States alone experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year. About 75% of them have a “mild” traumatic brain injury (MTBI), commonly known as concussions. Don’t let the term “mild” fool you though, as they can have significant consequences, leaving people with lasting impairments and disabilities. The severity of a head injury can be classified as mild, moderate, or severe depending on the symptoms and how serious it is. The most common causes of head injuries are falls, motor vehicle accidents, and sports-related incidents. Head injuries can have lasting effects on individuals in the long term. Depending on the severity and location of the injury, there are various ways in which these effects may show up. Cognitive abilities can be affected, leading to issues like memory loss, difficulty concentrating, or slower thinking. Emotional and behavioral changes are also common, such as mood swings, feelings of depression or anxiety, and increased irritability. Physical symptoms like persistent headaches, dizziness, and problems with balance may persist. In some cases, individuals may develop neurological disorders or experience difficulties with motor skills, coordination, or speech.
