There is a movement in the Brain Injury community to change the popular conceptualization of brain injuries.  Rather than a  brain injury being viewed as  a one-time event, this movement puts forth the assertion that it should be understood as a chronic disease.  The link below will take you to the position paper from the Brain Injury Association advocating for this change in public perception.  It was authored by the Medical Director of the Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute, Dr. Brent Masel.
