Long-Term Conditions Caused by Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries occur in a number of ways, and have many possible health consequences. The potential causes of traumatic brain injuries include sports injuries, falls, violent attacks, and car accidents. Just as there are many causes of traumatic brain injuries, there are many different consequences of traumatic brain injuries. The long-term conditions suffered by a traumatic brain injury victim depend on two factors: (1) the area of the brain that was hurt; and (2) the severity of the injury.

Potential Long-Term Conditions of Traumatic Brain Injury

Some of the potential long-term conditions caused by traumatic brain injuries include:

  • Physical Disabilities: A wide range of physical disabilities can follow a traumatic brain injury. Some traumatic brain injury victims suffer speech problems, decreased motor coordination, blurred vision, hearing problems, or the inability to use their arms or legs.
  • Cognitive Impairments: Some traumatic brain injury victims suffer from confusion, memory loss, trouble concentrating, changes in processing speed, decreased executive functioning, or the inability to stay focused on a task.
  • Behavioral Changes: Behavioral changes caused by traumatic brain injuries include intense fatigue, anger, the inability to make sound social choices, and significant mood changes.
  • Emotional Difficulties: Emotional difficulties can arise directly from the brain injury or as a result of dealing with a physical, cognitive, or behavioral condition caused by the traumatic brain injury.
