What should I know about brain injuries?

Even though you do your best to stay safe, there may be times when you are unable to prevent an injury. If you are hurt at work or in a car crash, one of the wounds you might receive is a traumatic brain injury. This kind of wound can have far-reaching effects on your health, so it is important to know basic information about this injury.

There are many ways you might incur a traumatic brain injury. According to the Mayo Clinic, car and motorcycle accidents might result in an injury to your head. You might also incur this wound if you slip and fall in the break room or fall off a ladder at work. It is important to remember that people of all ages can incur a traumatic brain injury but you might be more susceptible to this wound if you are older than 60.

After receiving a blow to your head, you might experience many side effects. You may begin to feel anxious or have mood changes. Sometimes you might have trouble concentrating or remembering new information. Additionally, you might feel nauseated, dizzy or disoriented. Tinnitus or blurred vision can also accompany a head wound. It is important to remember that sometimes it may take several days for symptoms to arise, so it is a good idea to pay attention to how you feel in the days and weeks after you receive a head wound.

Sometimes you may feel the effects of a traumatic brain injury long after the incident occurs. You might experience vertigo or headaches in the following weeks or months, especially if your wound was more severe. While you may think a bit of rest will help you feel better, it is important to see a doctor after you sustain a blow to your head. This is because even the mildest brain injury usually requires medical attention to ensure you do not experience complications.
