Brain injuries heal over time, so focus on your recovery first

Brain injuries are unpredictable and may change many things about you in just moments. As an adult with a new brain injury, you should know that your recovery may not be the same as other people, even if you have similar injuries and are of a similar age. Brain injuries can take weeks, months or years to recover. Their healing is known to slow over time.

Brain bleeds: Here's what you should know

There are many kinds of traumatic brain injuries, but one that needs immediate care is a brain bleed. When the brain is bleeding, pressure builds up inside the skull. There is a real risk that further damage could occur as the room inside the skull is limited and pressure is placed on the brain.

Coup and coup-contrecoup brain injuries

Emergency rooms in New Jersey and around the country treat several different types of serious brain injury. Coup injuries affect the part of the brain that was exposed to trauma while contrecoup injures are found opposite to the point of contact. The most serious brain injuries are what are known as coup-contrecoup injuries that affect both sides of the brain. Coup injuries are usually caused by an object striking the head while contrecoup injuries are most often suffered when a moving head strikes a wall, windshield or other stationary object.

Traumatic brain injuries can lead to mental health issues

New Jersey residents may be aware that brain injuries can lead to a wide variety of symptoms, including blurred vision, confusion and other side effects. What is not always mentioned, however, is that one's mental health can also be impacted by a concussion.

Portable brain scanner provides early detection possibilities

A new method to diagnose and treat traumatic brain injury is quickly approaching and may soon be available for patients in New Jersey. As traumatic brain injury is responsible for nearly 2,500 deaths in the U.S. annually and over 35,000 hospitalizations, the new diagnostic appliance is welcomed in the medical community.

Brain injuries linked to intestinal changes

Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine have discovered a two-way link among traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and changes in the colon. This may account for the increase in systemic infections that usually accompany a TBI. New Jersey residents that have experienced or know someone who has sustained a TBI will want to know more about this study.

How concussions differ between men and women

Residents of either gender in New Jersey may experience concussion symptoms in their lifetime. However, according to the director of the UCLA Brain Injury Research Center, women will experience those symptoms differently than men. As there has been little research into female concussion symptoms, it is still unclear why this is the case. Furthermore, women may take longer to recover from a concussion than men do after experiencing a head injury.

Traumatic brain injuries can cause long-term problems in children

New Jersey readers may be interested in learning that children who suffer a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, are more likely to develop attention problems than healthy children, according to a new study. However, optimal family environments can help children with TBI experience fewer symptoms.

Dealing with a brain injury after a cycling accident

New Jersey residents who suffer any type of impact to the head are susceptible to developing a traumatic brain injury. Although traumatic brain injuries are often associated with automobile accidents or contact sports, a good number of them also result from motorcycle or bicycle accidents, leaving people with major disabilities that can sometimes affect their ability to live life normally again.
