Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) carries profound consequences for individuals and society, as evidenced by some alarming statistics and health outcomes:

  • High Mortality: TBI is responsible for approximately 52,000 deaths annually in the U.S., underscoring the grave nature of these injuries.
  • Prevalence of Mild TBI (mTBI): Mild TBI (mTBI) accounts for roughly 75% of all cases, demonstrating that even less severe brain injuries can have a significant impact on public health.
  • Increased Risk of Dementia: Individuals with TBI have a 2-to-4-fold increased risk of developing dementia, a life-altering neurodegenerative disorder.
  • Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE): Often a consequence of repeated TBI, CTE can lead to a range of debilitating cognitive and emotional symptoms, such as poor concentration and memory, irritability, depression, and suicidal ideations.

These findings highlight the urgent need for comprehensive strategies to prevent, diagnose, and treat TBI to alleviate the immense burden it places on affected individuals and society at large.
