Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Not So Mild

Mild tramatic brain injuries (TBIs) in children can produce not so mild consequences. Researchers have found that 8-15 year old children with mild TBI experience significantly more headaches, inattention, and forgetfulness during the following year than children with extremity fractures. The risk was highest in those who had lost consciousness.
