The “Invisible Injury” – What Makes TBI Dangerous

TBI is not like most injuries; it usually goes undetected for some time because the symptoms can be subtle. This is especially true of mild and moderate TBI, which can avoid detection even on the most sophisticated medical imaging technology.

Because of this, many traumatic brain injuries are not given the treatment they need—especially in emergency rooms where necessary tests are not as in-depth as they should be.

Lack of Treatment is a Common Problem for TBI Victims

Brain injury victims rarely receive prompt and proper medical treatment. This includes medical attention to serious side effects like cognitive and physical impairment. In fact, early medical charts for TBI victims are often devoid of notes about “head injury.”

Brain injuries can only be treated if a medical professional identifies and diagnoses the injury. Sadly, “old school” health care practitioners can misunderstand persons with TBI because their outward appearance bears no indication of a serious injury.

The symptoms of a brain injury vary, but can involve:

  • Social Isolation
  • Mood Swings
  • Alienation
  • Cognitive Changes
  • Stifled Communication
  • Headaches
  • Taste / Smell

Life After a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

In the wake of a serious head injury, victims are usually unable to process information at the same speed as they were before the accident. One of the most obvious indicators of a TBI is the inability to recall memories. Accurate perception and judgement may be affected, and some cases lead to frustrated, nonconformist, and even outwardly violent behavior.
