Brain and Head injury
The structures of the brain are so complex that as a result, if injured it has little capacity to heal and regenerate. The brain is extremely vulnerable to injury and disease.
Even a minor trauma to the head can have significant effect on memory, speech, cognitive ability and movement. The brain doesn’t just control our bodies but it houses our mind, our personality and who we are.
When a person suffers a head injury, it can affect everything, including independence, depression, work and family life.
