Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

An acquired brain injury happens after birth and damages the brain. It either results from an outside force (traumatic injury) or from changes within the brain (non-traumatic injury).

Traumatic brain injury is caused by a contact injury or the brain moving back and forth inside the skull and being bumped, bruised or twisted. Causes include car crashes, falls, and being shaken by someone.

These tips have been developed to help prevent a traumatic brain injury.
