What is Brain Injury :

Brain injury refers to any type of damage to the brain that affects its normal functioning. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including trauma to the head, stroke, infection, lack of oxygen, or exposure to toxic substances.

There are two types of brain injury: traumatic and acquired. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by a sudden physical impact on the head, such as a fall, car accident, or assault. Acquired brain injury (ABI) refers to brain damage that occurs as a result of a non-traumatic event, such as a stroke, infection, or tumour.

Brain injuries can cause a wide range of symptoms, depending on the severity and location of the damage. Some common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, confusion, memory problems, difficulty with speech or language, changes in behaviour or mood, and difficulty with movement or coordination.
