1.5 Million Americans suffer Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) each year according to the Brain Injury Association of America. Serious brain injuries can occur in two ways, by blunt force ??? called traumatic brain injury, or by a lack of oxygen called anoxic brain injuries. Brain injuries are known to cause severe health conditions including unconsciousness, paralysis, and death.
Anoxic Brain injuries happen when the supply of oxygen is cut off to the brain. This often occurs in swimming and diving accidents, as well as in surgery complications and other accidents where the supply of oxygen is cut off to the point of causing brain damage.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) is caused by sudden acceleration or deceleration of the brain. These kinds of brain injuries usually occur when the skull comes in contact with a hard surface or object. This can cause tearing of the nerves, bruising of the tissue against the skull, brain stem injuries, and swelling. Swelling is one of the bodies healing functions, but can cause serious problems in the brain cavity because the brain has nowhere to move. Severe swelling can cause further damage to the brain. Traumatic brain injuries usually occur in serious accidents such as sports injuries, vehicular accidents, and severe blows to the head.

- Loss of voluntary or involuntary motor functions
