Speech problems associated with accidents

Montana residents may know that the effects of traumatic brain injuries are varied. One such effect may be the loss of the ability to move the muscles of the tongue and lips to form words. When this happens, the words may be distorted, or a very different word might be substituted.

Overcoming brain injuries

It is estimated that 2.5 million people a year around the country will suffer from a traumatic brain injury. After an injury occurs, doctors and family members will work together to help an injured Montana patient live as normal a life as possible. The type of rehabilitation program designed will depend largely on the type and severity of the injury suffered. For instance, a person who is in a coma will receive specific care to manage symptoms.

Long-term care and rehospitalization rates for brain injuries

Victims of brain injuries in Montana face higher overall medical and rehabilitation costs than those with other types of injuries. As the associated costs are so high, insurance companies have reacted by slashing the number of days people are initially hospitalized as well as the amount of time spent in rehabilitation for the injuries.

Understanding traumatic brain injuries

Montana residents may benefit from learning more about traumatic brain injuries, as described by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. The NINDS defines the injury, commonly referred to as TBI, as sudden trauma that damages brain tissue. The damage is often the result of a violent blow to the head that occurs suddenly. The injury may also be caused by an object penetrating the skull and coming into direct contact with the victim's brain tissue.
