What Are Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a disruption in the normal function of the brain. It can be caused by a blow, bump, or jolt to the head, or by a penetrating head injury, such as a bullet wound. Older adults and children have a higher risk of sustaining traumatic brain injuries.

What Are the Symptoms of TBI?

As stated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), symptoms of traumatic brain injury can last for days, weeks, or longer. TBI symptoms fall into four different categories:

  • Cognitive: Difficulty concentrating and thinking clearly, difficulty remembering new information, feeling slowed down.
  • Physical: Headache, fuzzy or blurry vision, dizziness, nausea or vomiting early on, balance problems, sensitivity to light or noise, tiredness, lack of energy.
  • Emotional: Irritability, nervousness or anxiety, sadness, being more emotional than normal.
  • Sleep: Sleeping more or less than usual, difficulty falling asleep.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries?

According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries include:

  • Falls: This is the leading cause of TBI overall, and particularly among older adults and children. CDC states that falls accounted for 48% of all TBI-related emergency room visits in a recent year.
  • Motor vehicle collisions: Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents are all leading causes of traumatic brain injury.
  • Violence: Domestic violence, gunshot wounds, assaults, and other acts of violence are a common cause of TBI.
  • Sports injuries: Traumatic brain injuries are not uncommon, particularly among youth, in high-impact or extreme sports, including football, soccer, boxing, baseball, hockey, skateboarding, and lacrosse.
  • Explosive blasts and combat injuries: Active-duty military personnel can sustain traumatic brain injuries from explosive blasts, penetrating wounds, slip and fall accidents, blows to the head with shrapnel or debris, or bodily collisions with objects following a blast.
