In the past few months, daily life has changed dramatically for Maryland residents.

Current data seems to suggest that therapy sessions for brain injury patients might be more beneficial than a conventional in-person session.
Relationships always require some give and take. Maintaining a long-term friendship is quite the accomplishment, and it is even more difficult to sustain a romantic relationship, especially when a couple lives together. Married couples frequently have to negotiate various situations in which both parties do not agree, and for a relationship that must factor in a brain injury, compromise can be a tall order. A Maryland victim might not be aware how his or her injury can complicate personal life.
Medical researchers dedicate themselves to finding new ways to help people suffering from serious conditions. Even with advances in technology and diagnostic methods, a serious brain injury may still carry a lot of unknowns.

Maryland is a state residents can be proud to call home, but it is not without its share of the social problems experienced across the nation. Even when the economy is relatively stable and the job market is plentiful, homelessness remains a growing concern for millions of Americans.

Medical research and technology is always advancing, but often, people can forget how important it is to better understand conditions without obvious physical symptoms. Now, some notable deaths are drawing public awareness and helping people understand the gravity of brain trauma. The recent death of a combat veteran has the nation concerned and a Maryland family fighting for answers.
Maryland residents may have been among the millions of Americans who were brought up thinking that a bump on the head is no big deal. It is not uncommon for people to decide to wait a few days after a head injury before seeking medical attention. While this type of injury may seem like no big deal, experts say a head injury victim should not wait to see a doctor.
As Maryland rings in a new year, some unfortunate residents may be suffering from last year's injuries. Concussions are a common type of head injury, but local doctors warn victims not to overdo it during the busy holiday season.
