A traumatic brain injury is the result of a violent blow to the head or body. Serious brain injuries can result in bruising, torn tissue, internal bleeding, and other long-term damage to the brain. A mild brain injury may only have temporary effects, but all brain injuries should quickly be examined by a doctor.

Traumatic brain injuries can have symptoms which are physical, sensory, cognitive, or mental. Some of these symptoms include:

  • Momentary (or sometimes long-term) loss of consciousness
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Speech problems
  • Difficulty falling asleep or oversleeping
  • Dizziness or poor balance
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Changes in the sense of smell
  • Unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • Loss of concentration
  • Mood changes
  • Depression or anxiety

If you or someone you know has experienced a recent traumatic brain injury, it is imperative that you seek emergency medical care right away because the brain could have internal bleeding which could cause long-term damage or death. Dr. Deborah Cantrell and her staff at Elite Neuroscience Center offers state-of-the-art treatment for traumatic brain injuries.
