Every year more than two million people seek treatment for traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Another concerning trend is that over a six-year period, TBI-related emergency department visits increased by more than 50 percent. TBIs are typically caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head and can lead to trouble with memory, sleep, movement, and vision or hearing, and can cause emotional issues. Although treatments for TBI vary depending on severity, an individual who has suffered a catastrophic injury may require years, or even a lifetime, of specialized care.
