Study adds to the link between football and head injuries

While our following source article may be a bit older, the topic of brain injuries and football is an ongoing and constantly evolving issue. The source talks about a newer study that found that high school football players would suffer brain abnormalities after a full season of "heavy hits" -- even if none of those heavy hits resulted in the player suffering a concussion.

Falls cause most head injuries for young children, says study

Brain injuries are obviously very severe injuries that can leave an individual with life-long problems. In the short term, a person can struggle with memory, recognition, concentration and a host of other potential symptoms. In the long term, their physical and mental capacity can be affected. It's impossible to talk about the symptoms of a brain injury without being vague because the variety and severity of the effects of a brain injury are myriad.

Work accidents are a major cause of brain injuries

It's early in the day and you're just getting into a groove for your work shift. You're walking around the work facility when you see one of your co-workers and you strike up a conversation. While the two of you are talking, another coworker spills some water on the ground a few yards down the hallway. Thinking nothing of it, that coworker moves along.

Rollover accident injures 5 people in Michigan

A rollover accident involving two cars in Michigan has left at least five people with injuries, two of which are young children. One of the children is a 3-year-old, while details on the other injured people were not readily available. There was an initial fear that one of the cars might explode, as leaking gas and a fire was spotted. But the fire went out and bystanders were able to help some of the injured people.

Study: for teens, brain injury recover could continue past 1 year

Conventional medical wisdom has held a long time that teens and children have about a year to regain cognitive abilities after a traumatic brain injury. The belief was that, 12 months out from a TBI, a young person has recovered as much as he or she ever will.

More ER visits are because of brain injury in U.S.

More and more people are showing up in U.S. emergency rooms with a traumatic brain injury. This could be due to greater awareness of the need to treat brain trauma, more such injuries occurring, or some combination of both. Thus, the findings could be both positive and negative for those concerned about brain health.

Report examines the complexity of birth injury development

Sometimes the truth is immediately ascertainable and apparent. However, sometimes the truth is difficult to uncover, difficult to understand or both. For many years, physicians, attorneys and parents have been led to believe that infants tend to suffer trauma to the brain as a result of a birth injury. New evidence suggests that while some infants do indeed suffer brain trauma as a direct result of birth injury, others may be harmed in the womb or even may be predisposed to brain injury due to factors present before they are conceived.

Someday, test may predict genetic risk of brain injury

As everybody knows, a blow to the head can cause a concussion. This is true whether the hit takes place on the sports field or in a car accident. But why do some people seem to recover from concussions with no long-term effects, while others become affected by chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, later in life? Could it be in your genes whether or not you are vulnerable to brain injury?
