Injuries to the brain that are not caused by an external physical force to the head are called non-traumatic brain injuries. This includes stroke, tumours, aneurysm, and substance use. Non-traumatic brain injuries can happen at any age and result in a variety of effects that can impact a person physically, cognitively, emotionally and behaviourally. Non-traumatic brain injury recovery can include hospitalization, rehabilitation, and different types of therapy to assist in learning new methods to complete activities of daily living.
