Every year more than 2 million brain injuries, also known as closed head injuries, occur in the United States. These injuries can have serious negative impacts on learning , cognition and quality of life. The scary fact is that a person does not have to actually their head to sustain a brain injury. Being violently jarred in an automobile accident, a slip and fall, or even an assault can cause long-term injury to the brain.
Brain injuries can manifest themselves in subtle ways. Symptoms may include headaches, loss of concentration, difficulty in completing simple tasks, short-term memory loss, irritability, depression, and slowed reaction to stimuli.
Many people who sustain brain injuries can recover with substantial medical treatment. Others unfortunately, suffer permanent changes in their ability to reason, think, and remember.

Medical professionals specializing in brain injuries can test and diagnose even mild brain injuries and recommend, or refer appropriate treatments.
