A brain injury is a sudden event that can change a life. Whether it’s a mild injury that simply requires rest and monitoring or a serious traumatic injury that can result in serious permanent disabilities, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are physical injuries to the brain that require expert, specialized assessment and treatment to ensure the best long-term outcome.
