Daily conversations help fight effects of brain injury

Most New Haven, Connecticut, residents know that a head injury can be damaging in a number of ways. Despite seeming to be a bony, well-protected part of the body, the skull and the brain inside are as prone to injury as, for instance, any of the joints. Often, brain damage is hardly, if at all, visible. A brain injury can cause anything from mild disorientation to a permanent disability. Detecting such injuries can also be problematic since they can be caused by mild impact and not just major collisions.

Connecticut residents become more aware of brain injury

Since 2010, Connecticut residents have become more aware of the long-term effects of head trauma.

The brain is an important organ in the human body. An injury involving the brain can greatly affect a person. Symptoms of a brain injury may appear instantly following an accident in some cases. In other cases, the symptoms are delayed. It all depends on the condition of the patient. Head injuries can lead to a coma, permanent disability and amnesia. Brain injury patients may need long-term care and a series of therapies and rehabilitation, which can give a person back a normal life.
