Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a disruption of brain function resulting from a blow or jolt to the head or penetrating head injury.
TBIs can occur on the battlefield, on the football field, on the playground, in a car accident, and even at home.
There are four categories of TBI including mild, moderate, severe and penetrating.
A mild TBI (mTBI), which is also known as a concussion, is the most common form of TBI.
The Traumatic Brain Injury Survival Guide website is an online book by Dr. Glen Johnson, a Clinical Neuropsychologist and Clinical Director of the Neuro-Recovery Head Injury Program in Traverse City, MI. The website is setup like a book with links to chapters, and the information is focused specifically on TBI and is given very concisely in laymen's terms.
The goal of this online book is to better prepare the person with the head injury and family for the long road ahead.
