Small head blows, like in soccer, can cause brain problems later | Riverside Motorcycle Injury Attorneys | San Bernardino Pedestrian Accidents Law Firm

Much of the research into traumatic brain injury, or TBI, in recent years has focused on concussions, as readers in Los Angeles who have been following the issue know.  But some studies have suggested that sub-concussion blows can have a cumulative effect similar to brain injuries caused by concussion. A new study adds ammunition to that contention by focusing on a seemingly innocuous soccer move.

Scott J Corwin's insight:

While the individual instances may leave a player unaffected or dazed, the combined effect can yield similar symptoms as to those who have sustained multiple concussions.  I wrote this blog post to bring this to the forefront of people's attention.

Common Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a trauma-induced physiological disruption of brain function. It can be caused by a direct blow to the head or by the brain undergoing movement in the skull without any direct external trauma to the head, such as from whiplash in a car accident. A TBI is usually manifested by at least one of the following symptoms:

Loss of consciousnessAmnesia or loss of memory for events immediately before or after the accidentVomiting, dizziness or nauseaUnusual irritability, nervousness, fatigue or forgetfulnessLoss of appetite and weight lossAlteration in mental state at the time of the accident, such as feeling dazed, disoriented or confused

Traumatic Brain Injuries can result in long term, debilitating and permanent disabilities. Often a person cannot maintain his or her normal daily activities of living. Part time or round the clock care giving can be required. A person's ability to think properly and coherently is often affected. Serious TBI injuries can result in reducing a completely independent person to a childlike dependent state. Sometimes however, TBI injuries can be much more subtle in the outward appearance of symptoms but can still be a very serious and long term disability. Proper neurological examination and neuropsychiatric testing is required to accurately diagnose the TBI injuries and proper rehabilitative care.

Are repeat concussions a problem in the NFL?

Are repeat concussions a problem in the NFL? | Brain Injury Attorney | Scoop.it
In the January-February 2011 issue of Sports Health, Ira R. Casson, MD et al. present the NFL's concussion data over the last 12 years, focusing on the problem of players suffering repeat concussions.
Scott J Corwin's insight:

Concussions can result in many long term effects that change a persons life. Repeated hits to the head only exacerbates these problems and increases recovery time.  Neck and back injuries, from incidents similar to whiplash, can result in further treatment. If you experienced a serious brain injury, you need to seek proper medical attention as soon as possible and contact a top notch brain injury attorney.  Scott J.
