What to Expect After a Maryland Traumatic Brain Injury

By Alpert Schreyer on July 13, 2012

Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery MarylandA traumatic brain injury (TBI) is any injury to the brain, whether by hitting the head, being hit by something, or having an object pierce the skull and enter the brain. Traumatic brain injuries are among the most expensive and difficult injuries to treat, and they can result in serious, life-long disabilities.

The treatment and recovery time you can expect after a TBI varies, depending on which parts of the brain are injured and how badly. About half of all patients with severe TBIs need surgery to fix ruptured blood vessels or badly damaged brain tissue, according to the National Institutes of Health. Additional physical therapy, speech therapy, or other rehabilitation may be needed, again depending on which parts of the brain were affected by the injury.

Long-term disabilities a TBI may cause include:

  • Problems with thinking, memory, or reasoning skills;
  • Difficulty processing sensory input, like sights, sounds, and smells;
  • Problems with speaking, writing, or understanding communication from others;
  • Difficulty with motor functions, like walking or grasping objects;
  • Changes in personality or mood, like depression, anxiety, or aggression;
  • Long-term inability to function, such as a coma or a persistent vegetative state; and
  • Chronic pain, including headaches and neck pain.

Even a mild concussion or other TBI can cause lingering symptoms.
