Is a TBI Permanent?

It is not, however, impossible to make significant strides in your recovery with early detection of the injury and proper treatment.

Below, we discuss what the recovery prognosis for a TBI victim may look like.

Will a TBI Ever Completely Heal?

TBIs fall into three major categories: mild, moderate, and severe. Generally speaking, the more severe the injury, the longer your recovery time will be.

This is not, however, a fool-proof prediction.

For instance, many severe TBI victims make significant strides in their health and recovery, while some mild TBI victims experience debilitating symptoms for the remainder of their lives. These symptoms may include:

  • Headaches

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Blurred vision

  • Personality changes

The earlier a TBI victim gets medical attention and a proper diagnosis, the better their chances of having a positive prognosis. The issue with this, however, is that many symptoms of TBIs are subtle or difficult to detect on modern imaging equipment, which means that many victims receive delayed diagnoses.

This is why it’s vital for you to seek medical attention as soon as possible after a head injury.
