Understanding Brain Damage

The human brain controls every aspect of our bodies and is responsible for giving us speech, movement, and intelligent thought. When the brain suffers a trauma of some kind, the injury may cause brain damage to occur. These types of injuries are particularly frightening because they have the potential to seriously affect our ability to function. In some cases, brain injuries have even affected an individual’s personality.

The severity of a brain injury depends on the location of the physical trauma to the brain. Brain injuries may be classified as mild, moderate, or severe. Individuals who have suffered a physical trauma to the brain may not see symptoms of a brain injury until several days or weeks after the initial injury. If you believe that you’ve suffered some type of brain injury, visit a doctor for an examination right away.

There are many ways in which a person may sustain a brain injury. Common causes include falling, violence, and automobile accidents. While prevention can be difficult, given the many causes of brain injuries, wearing a helmet or other protective head gear whenever possible is a start.
