What Other Conditions Can Traumatic Brain Injuries Exacerbate?

A recent report by the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine found that traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are linked to Parkinson’s disease, dementia, depression, seizures, hypothalamic diseases and pituitary diseases. Consequently, it will now be easier for military veterans with TBI and associated illnesses to receive disability benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The results of the study indicate that there is no singular treatment for TBI victims. A brain injury can be caused by a singular traumatic incident, such a car accident, or sustained traumas, such as repeated concussions in sports. TBIs effect the victim’s emotional health and cognitive abilities. As such, treating a TBI victim requires multilateral medical care by psychiatrists, psychologists, physical therapists and neurologists all working in conjunction. The extremely complicated medical process of treating a TBI victim is an impossible financial burden.
