Traumatic Brain Injury

There are many forms of brain injuries.  A hit, blow or jolt to the head can disrupt brain function. Headaches, memory loss, and vomiting can be signs of a brain injury.  Disregarding a mild concussion can be fatal.    Closed head injuries from falls, skateboarding, skiing and bicycle accidents often initially appear minor but can actually be a catastrophic trauma like the actress Natasha Richardson suffered. If the injury is not properly identified and treated immediately it can result in coma or death. If you or a loved one has recently suffered a head injury, SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL CARE.
