|Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major public health problem. In the United States, more than 1.5 million individuals sustain TBI every year. It is estimated that almost 320,000 deployed American personnel may have suffered varying degrees of TBI. Mild TBI (mTBI) is the most frequent type of TBI among both veteran and civilian populations. In the civilian sector, the majority of cases with mTBI are associated with early symptoms that typically resolve within a few days to a few months post injury. However, a minority of individuals continue to complain of ongoing post concussive somatic, cognitive, and/or behavioral symptoms that may lead to long-term functional limitation.
