TBI (Traumatic brain injury) is a severe injury caused by a sudden blow or jolt to the head. It can occur as a result of a wide range of accidents, including auto accidents, sports injuries, assault, and premises injuries.
Auto accidents are one of the most common causes of TBI, as the force of impact can cause the brain to move within the skull, resulting in injury.
Falls are also one of the most common reasons. According to CDC, almost half of the reported hospitalized traumatic brain injury cases are from falls.
Sports injuries, such as concussions, can also cause TBI, especially in contact sports like football, soccer, lacrosse, horse back riding and hockey.
Assault is another common cause of TBI. Examples are getting in a fight, a blow to the head, or suffering from domestic abuse.
Premises injuries, such as slip and fall accidents, are also common causes of TBI. These types of injuries can occur on the job or on another business's property and can be caused by a range of hazards, such as wet floors, loose carpeting, and faulty equipment.
Often, in the cases of Traumatic Brain Injury, all focus is put on healing the physical injury. However, it is crucial to understand that counseling is also an essential component of treating both TBI and PTSD, especially when they occur together.
Counseling is particularly useful because it can help you identify and address co-occurring mental health conditions that may be contributing to your PTSD symptoms. For example, a patient with TBI-related PTSD may also be experiencing depression or anxiety that is exacerbating their PTSD symptoms.
Seeking counseling from an expert can help you overcome your PTSD and return to a healthier and more satisfying life. Given its profound impact, it is important to consider counseling with traditional physical therapies for individuals with TBI and PTSD.
