Concussion Is Brain Injury

Restoring your life after brain injury

  • Traumatic brain injury can impair both saliva composition and production, leading to tooth decay. Better cooperation between medicine and dentistry could prevent increased damage.
  • Personal Perspective: Brain injury concentrates your mind on the essential question: “What will give me meaning in my life?”
  • Understanding your brain injury grief starts with two types of grief states. Neuroscience has begun to teach us how the brain feels grief, but not how damage affects it.
  • Personal Perspective: Knowledge and experience pre-brain injury does not equate to can-do afterward. Inclusivity means creating systems that don’t disrupt our functionality.
  • Is feeling bitter after brain injury an attitude that needs psychotherapy or is it serving a function whose cause you need to understand so as to heal it?
