A traumatic brain injury or a TBI, is any time there is damage to the brain such as bruising, shearing, tearing, or blunt trauma. A concussion is considered a mild traumatic brain injury or a mTBI. It’s considered less severe and usually is recovered more quickly than a TBI. People typically experience long-term symptoms from TBIs but those who experience concussions can also experience the same if left untreated.

Seek out a concussion specialist if you feel like you aren’t getting better even though you are past the 2 to 4 week mark for healing. Some are even told by their primary care provider that because their MRI or CT scans are negative they are fine, but they will still be experiencing severe symptoms. Whether you have a mTBI or TBI it’s best to see someone who is trained to work with these conditions and give you the right environment to heal from your brain injury.
