The blog Science.Mic recently featured this documentary:
“Although less than 10% of concussions result in a lack of consciousness, all concussions — from mild ones to full-on throttling of the brain inside the skull during major accidents — are considered traumatic brain injuries. Every year, 1.4 million Americans are seen in emergency rooms for TBIs.”
Although brain injury recovery is challenging, TBI survivors are heroes. This injury is among the most difficult to live with and understand. Nevertheless, the medical advances continue to bring new opportunities for recovery. We must also give credit to the survivors themselves. Their resilience and determination often bring great medical results. Finally, doctors continue to study the ways the brain repairs itself, and look for ways to advance treatments. Our understanding of TBI is just starting.
