What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain by some outside force that causes dysfunction. This “outside force” can be caused by anything from whiplash in a car accident in Kennewick to falling down faulty stairs in an apartment complex in Richland (we’ve had success with both). Our understanding of the body’s ability to recover from TBI is continually growing as the science improves. Although most of the nervous system cannot regenerate, proper medical treatment can help improve the neural pathways that the brain uses to process information.
