A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is caused by a blow to the head that is severe enough to cause disruption in brain function. TBIs can also occur from rapid, back-and-forth movement of the brain within the skull. This movement is what damages the brain in cases of shaken baby syndrome and in whiplash injuries that result in TBIs.
