What is traumatic brain injury?

Traumatic brain injury can be defined as any damage to the brain caused by trauma of any sort. Brain injuries are sometimes categorized as mild, moderate or severe, but even a mild brain injury can have serious consequences. Health Practitioners use a number of measuring sticks to categorize brain injuries. Two of the most commonly used are the Glasgow Outcome Scale and the Glasgow Coma Scale.
