Traumatic brain injury may increase dementia risk

Being injured in any kind of accident can turn your life upside down. For most victims, the lifestyle change that accompanies an injury is only temporary until the wounds heal and they are able to get back to their day-to-day lives. Yet, those who suffer serious injuries like a traumatic brain injury can be left with negative effects for the rest of their lives.

Chronic pain can accompany traumatic brain injury

Fortunately, the vast majority of car accidents result in relatively minor injuries. Victims in these wrecks are often able to walk away with scratches, bruises, and maybe a cut or two. Many others, though, suffer serious harm, such as brain and spinal cord injuries. These individuals often have a long road to recovery ahead of them, and for many recovery itself is limited.

Traumatic brain injury and its effects

It doesn't take a decorated medical professional to know that brain injuries are quite serious. They can reshape an California resident's life, leaving him or her unable to perform tasks that were once a part of his or her daily life. Yet, although many of us know that a brain injury can leave a victim with severe limitations, the real impact of a traumatic brain injury is utterly staggering.

What is the cost of treating a spinal cord injury?

Suffering any type of injury can affect your life in more ways than one. Yet, there is a spectrum of severity on which these injuries fall. Some car accident victims, for example, are fortunate enough to escape with nothing more than a minor cut or some bruising. On the other end of the spectrum, though, are victims who are left with serious injuries such as brain trauma and spinal cord injuries. For these individuals, their life post-injury can be defined by physical pain and limitations, emotional hardship, and financial loss.

How can a traumatic brain injury affect a person's life?

Whether it is caused by a car crash, a sports injury or a fall, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can be disabling or even fatal. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reports that TBIs play a role in about 30 percent of all fatal injuries in the nation. Therefore, it is important for residents of Encinitas to recognize how a severe TBI can affect an individual's life.
