Types of Brain Injuries
No two brain injuries are alike and every brain injury affects people differently. In fact, some brain injuries may not even be apparent to certain individuals following an accident. Sometimes a blow to the head or a sudden violent motion can cause closed head injuries, in which the brain knocks against the skull. Due to this trauma, the brain can swell and bleed causing an increased amount of pressure to damage brain tissue. Other brain injuries, known as open head injuries are often the result of bullet wounds, falls and high-speed collisions. Different from closed head injuries, open head injuries crack or penetrate the skull often leaving objects lodged inside the brain.
As part of the central nervous system, the brain, along with the spinal cord, controls the body’s ability to function. When the brain is injured, normal human functioning can be interrupted. Limited use of arms and legs, abnormal speech, mental loss, anxiety and depression are common results of brain injuries. Even mild brain injuries can have a devastating impact on a person’s life. Altered brain function can have a dramatic impact on family, a career and social interactions.
