What is a Neurological Disorder?
Neurological disorders are not only difficult for individuals who live with them, but for their close friends and family as well. That said, hundreds of neurological disorders exist and can affect a person in a myriad of ways, depending on the injury that caused it. Some neurological conditions can affect memory while others might affect the ability to perform normal movement patterns. Regardless of the type of neurological disorder one has, however, there is no doubt that its effects are life-changing.
Here are some of the most common neurological disorders that often result from catastrophic brain injuries:
- Alzheimer’s disease and dementia: These types of conditions severely affect a person’s ability to think and memory capabilities. Although it is commonly associated with
the aging process, these types of conditions can develop in those who sustained traumatic brain injuries.
- Parkinson’s disease: Those suffering from Parkinson’s disease often experience tremors in the face, arms, hands, jaw, and legs. Additionally, balance and coordination might also be impaired. Many studies have noted a strong link between traumatic brain injuries and Parkinson’s disease.
- Epilepsy: Those suffering from epilepsy can experience a range of different seizures caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Traumatic brain injuries can cause epilepsy in the immediate aftermath or in the months and years following the injury.
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS): No one knows for certain what causes MS, but it is believed that chronic infections and traumatic brain injuries trigger this condition.
These are just a handful of neurological disorders linked to or caused by traumatic brain injuries. Many other types of neurological disorders can arise from sustaining this type of catastrophic injury, so it is crucial to seek medical attention as soon as possible to receive a diagnosis and begin treatment.
