A damaged brain can drastically affect any part of the body. Those who suffer from a brain injury are often found dealing with numerous obstacles that prevent them from performing certain day-to-day activities. Brain injuries can be temporary or permanent depending on how badly the brain was damaged from the impact. Services are offered to those who have a brain injury, such as procedures or therapy, to help improve their quality of life.
Recovery may vary depending on whether the brain injury is classified as mild, moderate, or severe. Each type of injury requires different treatments. To diagnose the severity of brain damage, patients are typically told to get a computerized tomography (CT) scan or MRI done.
