Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a sudden blow to the head or the concussive force of an explosion. Such an injury can cause changes in cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning.

Symptoms of traumatic brain injury include headaches, memory loss, difficulty concentrating, impulsive behavior, anxiety and depression.

Rehabilitation centers for treating severe traumatic brain injury are licensed by the Arizona Department of Public Health and their histories are available online at www.azcarecheck.com.
