Approximately 5.3 million Americans are living with a long-term disability resulting from brain injury.
Each year another 80,000 to 90,000 individuals in rural and urban communities become permanently disabled from a brain injury. The disabilities may include limited mobility, short-term memory, inability to concentrate, poor balance, blurry or double vision, depression, and chronic pain. Farming, ranching, and other professions may be affected.
