Can A Simple Pamphlet Reduce TBI Problems In Children?

"Traumatic brain injury (TBI)" - the phrase alone makes parents shiver. Nothing is more terrifying than being told that your child has suffered such an injury. For too many parents, however, that fear will become a reality. The CDC estimates that one out of every 30 children will suffer a brain injury of some kind by age 16.

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury - A Complicated Case

The recent interest in brain injuries in the media might make people think that this is an injury unique to only NFL football players. The fact is though, that traumatic brain injuries in athletes account for only about 20% of these injuries. Motor vehicle crashes are actually the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries that result in hospitalizations. In a report by the Centers for Disease Control to Congress, it was reported that each year approximately 1.7 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury, over 50,000 people die per year and between 80 and 90,000 people are left with a long term disability.
