Our previous post examined a new treatment that may help those suffering from traumatic brain injuries. Despite the advancements in the medical arena, many of those in Philadelphia who suffer a traumatic brain injury may find themselves not only unable to work, but also unable to perform many of the daily tasks they used to do with ease. It can be incredibly frustrating, not just on an emotional level, but on a financial level as well. After all, a person still needs to afford the basic necessities of food, clothing and shelter, not to mention the costs of medical care and drugs that they incur due to their disability.
A person in Philadelphia can suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in many different ways, whether it is a car accident, a sports injury or a fall on an icy sidewalk. Closed-skull TBIs can have a significant effect on a person's life. They can cause personality changes, language loss, disability or even death. What all TBIs have in common, however, is that the brain swelling that often follows can worsen the injury.
