What is a TBI

TBI is an injury that can change the way your brain normally works and is caused by an external force to the head. The severity of TBI may range from ' mild" (i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness) to “severe" (i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after an injury). Mild traumatic brain injury (mild TBI) accounts for nearly 75 percent of all TBIs.
