Traumatic Brain Injuries
Trauma to the brain is usually the result of a direct blow to the head. It can also be caused by severe whiplash. They can be notoriously difficult to diagnose, especially where no external injury is visible. A brain injury that may appear minor initially has the potential to become deadly very quickly.
TBI’s can have lifelong effects for the injured. Memory loss, loss of brain function, mood changes, depression and other physical ailments or chronic conditions can take their toll long after the initial symptoms subside.
Common causes of TBIs include:
Spinal Cord Injuries
- Complete Spinal Cord Injury: A complete spinal cord injury refers to complete loss of function below the injury to the spinal cord. No treatment is available to restore the function below the injury.
- Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury: An incomplete SCI may be caused by swelling or fragments around the spinal cord that can restrict function below the injury. Some feeling or movement is retained, no matter how slight. Good, prompt medical care can help reduce swelling, making for a better chance of more improved function following the injury.
