BRAIN INJURY IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

 

If you have recently suffered a traumatic brain injury, we strongly recommend that you visit our state of the art imaging facilities and brain specialists as soon as possible. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by outside forces rather than internal and are the result of a severe blow to the head that can happen during a car accident, sports, or by falling. Suffering a brain injury can be a scary experience, but traumatic brain injuries are actually quite common with more than 200,000 cases in the United States per year. At Townsen Memorial Hospital and Emergency Room, our staff is knowledgeable and has extensive experience regarding brain injury, helping our patients recover and get back to normal in no time.

SIGNS OF BRAIN INJURY

 

 

Traumatic brain injuries can be the result of a severe sports injury such as getting a concussion during football or gymnastics, and can also be the result of a car crash. Immediate symptoms may include blurry vision, dizziness, memory loss, and concentration difficulty. As the brain is in charge of carrying out a wide array of bodily functions, symptoms of brain injury will not be the same for all patients depending on what part of the brain is affected. Symptoms may be cognitive, behavioral, sensory, or may affect your speech, muscles, or eyes. 

Because brain injuries may result in much more serious problems, it is important to go to the hospital for imaging and assessment as soon as possible after sustaining an injury.
