A traumatic brain injury is usually the result of physical trauma by an external force. This can include:
An acquired brain injury is typically caused at the cellular level, resulting in lack of oxygen to the brain or pressure and swelling. The causes can include:
- Heart attack
- Brain aneurysms
- Substance abuse
- Brain tumors
- Certain illnesses
Long-Term Implications & Treatment Options for Brain Injuries
There are severe consequences that can stem from a brain injury. Depending on its severity, it can also lead to death. Should someone survive the incident, pervasive health issues can surface. Some of these long-term cognitive problems can include attention deficits, personality changes, mood swings, difficulty thinking, abnormal speech or loss of language and many other issues. For some, it can also lead to more significant consequences such as loss of movement and functioning of limbs or a comatose state.
As far as treatment options, this varies based on the severity of the injury. However, it can include prescribed ways to manage the pain, accompanied by management and monitoring of the symptoms. It can also involve rehabilitative care that aids to restore proper functions for your daily life.
