Is traumatic brain injury age-related?

Posted on July 2, 2015 2:12 pm under Car Accidents

Signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) affect not just a person’s physical health, but also thinking and judgment skills, sleep, and mood. Sometimes, these manifestations can be so severe that seeking medical help is necessary to avoid life-threatening complications.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one of the risk factors associated with TBI is age. Individuals 65-years-old and above, for instance, are more prone to fall-related TBI due to the health effects associated with ageing. Children and young adults aged between 5 and 24, on the other hand, are at higher risk of TBI caused by motor vehicle accidents.
