Common Types of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are typically categorized as traumatic brain injuries and non-traumatic brain injuries. Keep in mind that TBI’s are caused by physical trauma to the head, while non-TBI’s stem from diseases, infections, swelling, and the like. However, TBI’s can eventually result in non-TBI’s. For clarity, see the following examples:
