What Is a Brain Injury?

A brain injury refers to any injury or damage to the brain that disrupts its normal functioning. It can result from various causes, including accidents, falls, sports injuries, assaults, or medical conditions. Brain injuries can range from mild to severe, and their effects can be temporary or long-lasting, depending on the extent and location of the damage.

Types of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are typically classified by the severity of their symptoms and how they affect a person's day-to-day life.

There are two main types of brain injuries:

  1. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  2. Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)

Other common types of brain injuries are:

  • Diffuse traumatic brain injury
  • Second impact syndrome
  • Concussions
  • Post-traumatic amnesia
  • Post-traumatic epilepsy
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Dementia

What Are Traumatic Brain Injuries?

As the name suggests, a TBI occurs when the victim experiences some form of trauma to the body, specifically the neck and/or head, which results in an injury to the brain. A TBI is a type of acquired brain injury (ABI), which is a type of brain injury that is not congenital, degenerative, or heredity and which is not caused by a birth injury. TBIs are classified as either open-head injuries (penetrating) or closed-head injuries (non-penetrating).

TBIs often result from the following types of accidents and events:

Acquired Brain Injuries

Non-traumatic brain injuries (or acquired brain injuries), on the other hand, typically result from internal causes, such as:

  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Pressure from a brain tumor
  • Toxic exposure
  • Aneurysms
  • Heart attacks or strokes
  • Infectious diseases

Non-traumatic brain injuries are often caused by near-drownings, birth injuries, and work-related exposure to harmful chemicals/substances, among other events.
