Traumatic Brain Injury

A brain Injury can result from a blow or jolt to the head caused by a fall, a motor vehicle accident,
a sports injury, or an assault. A brain injury can also occur from a health problem like a tumor or a stoke.

Have you ever had a brain injury that limited you in any way for more than a week in any activities?
