March 2, 2021 – Did you know March is Brain Injury Awareness Month? Many veterans who suffered a head injury sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Preventative measures and awareness have increased thanks to multiple studies over the last several decades.
A TBI can be serious and it is important to seek treatment. Common symptoms include severe or persistent headaches, loss of balance, loss of concentration, tinnitus, fatigue, and slowed thinking, acting, speaking, or reading.
