Brain Injury - Caused by Different Factors

These factors include head trauma, inadequate oxygen supply, infection or intracranial hemorrhage. These injuries may result in behavioral changes and/or functional abnormalities.

Every brain injury presents its own challenges, and some challenges are greater than others. Individuals who experience a moderate to severe brain injury often require specialized rehabilitation so that they can regain their skills and abilities, and address new problems posed by their injury. Aggression, anger, and self-control problems are common among brain-injured individuals.

Other problems may include:

  • Aggression towards others
  • Self injury
  • Deficient judgment and problem solving due to cognitive deficits
  • Frequent agitation
  • Prolonged confused state
  • Seizure disorders and related behavioral problems
  • Significant memory and learning problems
  • Disruption of sleep/wake cycles
  • Problems with attention, filtering and focusing
  • Emergence of mental health problems or exacerbation of pre-existing mental health or substance abuse issues
