Brain injuries have been termed a “silent epidemic.” A brain injury is silent because a brain-injured person does not always have visible physical symptoms. It is an epidemic because brain injuries are becoming more and more common, with one in every 220 people in the United States suffering from a brain injury. For this week’s discussion, you will evaluate different types of brain injuries and their impact on the individual affected.
