Some football helmets offer more protection against head injuries, according to a new study.
Researchers reported that children who suffered from a concussion should rest their brains as well as their bodies.
Even without a concussion, blows to the head may damage the brain. Researchers found that football athletes and ice hockey players who suffered blows to the head showed changes in their learning and memory abilities.
Researchers found that four months after a concussion when symptoms have greatly reduced, damage is still present in the frontal cortex area.
A team of paediatrics has come up with new and effective guidelines to battle concussion. Concussion is the most common and devastating type of head injury in which the key to recovery is physical and mental rest.
Neurocognitive tests may be more accurate than self-reports when evaluating concussion recovery, a new study suggests.
Concussions are relatively common, but can lead to serious long-term health effects. Therefore, it is imperative that diagnosis and management of these common traumatic brain injuries are important.
Researchers reported that young athletes are still playing with concussion symptoms despite an increased risk for future injury and brain damage.
