The Centers for Disease Control calls head injuries a “serious public health problem.”
1.7 million Americans have been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Some symptoms may become apparent in as little as 24 hours, while other symptoms may not appear for weeks or even months. Sometimes, even attentive loved ones are dismissive of the initial TBI signs. Mood changes and anger are attributed to “a bad day.” A busy schedule and the natural aging process are blamed for memory problems. But TBI effects do not stop with irritability and nuisance. TBI patients often develop a prolonged sense of hopelessness, followed by serious depression and perhaps even suicide.
Researchers believe that most TBIs in Boston are caused either by a blow to the head or by a deep, penetrating wound. The brain is so sensitive that there does not have to be very much force at all to cause a brain injury.
