Head and brain injury or TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) can have a devastating impact on someone’s life and affects the lives of everyone close to them. Complete recovery from brain injuries is often unlikely, and present and future attention and medical care is often necessary.
WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF TBI’S?
There are generally two types of TBI’s which include open head injuries (OHI) and Closed Head Injuries (CHI). CHI’s differ from OHI’s, in that for CHI’s there is a sudden violent movement of the brain inside the head that causes impairment. CHI’s are particularly are devastating because they are more difficult to spot, but nevertheless often significantly impair the functioning of an individual.
