Have you a loved one suffered a Brain Injury due to a fall or a accident?
No medical threat is quite as difficult or terrifying as a brain injury. We all understand that the brain is the key organ in the body, essentially the headquarters for life, so any threat of cognitive impairment is frightening, to the say the least.
Indeed, people who endure brain injuries often face long roads to recovery. Some must relearn simple tasks that were once second nature. Many face mountainous medical bills and a lifetime of difficulty in their personal and professional lives.
Unfortunately, brain injuries are more common than most people realize. In fact, nearly two million people sustain a brain injury every year – and more than 500,000 of those are serious enough to require hospitalization.
The good news is that our skulls offer natural protection to the brain, and that barrier is sufficient in most accidents. Minor blows to the head and brain sometimes heal on their own, and many more can improve with prompt treatment.
