Brain Injury Information

Available evidence supports the use of certain cognitive and behavioral rehabilitation strategies for individuals with TBI. Increased understanding of the mechanisms of TBI and recovery hold promise for new treatments. People with TBI, their families, and significant others are integral to the implementation of the rehabilitation process and research. Rehabilitation services, matched to the needs of persons with TBI, and community-based non-medical services are needed to optimize outcomes over the course of recovery.

TBI is more than twice as likely in males. The highest incidence is among persons 15 to 24 years of age and 75 years and older. Given the large toll of TBI and absence of a cure, prevention is of paramount importance.
