Traumatic Brain Injury

Our brains are resilient, but a jolt or blow to the head can cause a sever injury to the brain. Traumatic brain injuries can range from mild concussions to permanent brain damage.

With a dedicated Trauma Concussion and Sports Medicine (TRACS) program, the Traumatic Brain Injury clinic at the Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases understands that brain injuries can also affect more than just your physical condition, including your cognitive and emotional being.
