Understanding Brain Injuries


A brain injury can occur in various ways and can affect anyone, regardless of age or circumstance. Unlike visible injuries, most brain injuries are not immediately apparent.

Visibility of Brain Injuries

In cases of open injuries, such as wounds causing visible bleeding from the ears or eyes, the extent of the damage is evident. However, the majority of brain injuries are closed, making it impossible to detect without medical imaging techniques like a CAT scan.

Challenges in Diagnosis

Diagnosing a brain injury relies heavily on recognizing symptoms and observations from those around the affected individual. Without visible signs, identifying the injury can be challenging.

Protecting Our Brain

As we only have one brain, it's crucial to prioritize its care and well-being, taking preventive measures to avoid injuries and promptly addressing any concerns.
