This is particularly true of brain injuries.
What are Brain Injuries?
Brain injuries occur when through a jolt, your brain is pushed to the side of your skull, bruising the brain. In addition, when the brain hits the skull, it can also lead to an alteration of the balance of chemicals in the brain. Nerve tissues within the brain may also be stretched or torn. In best case scenarios, nerve fibers will recover from an injury. In other, more severe brain injuries, the nerve cells and tissues may permanently lose the ability to properly community with other cells in the brain.
Due to the seriousness of injury that can result from even a seemingly minor car, truck, motorcycle, or bicycle accident, anyone who is at risk for a brain injury should seek medical care.
Symptoms of brain injuries may include:
- blurred vision
- changes in moods
- difficulty or inability to wake up
- headaches or recurring headaches
- inability to concentrate
- loss of balance

- numbness or weakness in extremities
- periods of unconsciousness
- recurrent vomiting or diarrhea
