Brain injuries occurring without concussions or major blows

Many Florida residents realize that a major blow to the head requires careful monitoring to ensure that there aren't signs of a concussion. However, dizziness and headaches in the absence of any obvious head injuries could be confusing. In such cases, brain injury might not be immediately obvious. However, it is estimated that four of every five traumatic brain injuries occur without concussions. Mild symptoms should not be ignored because they could be attributed to brain injury that has occurred due to brain inertia.

Florida accident victims could develop apraxia

Certain types of brain damage can cause a condition known as apraxia. Generally affecting the muscle coordination portion of the brain, people suffering from the condition will experience difficulty when attempting to produce speech, therefore creating a communication barrier.

Brain injuries can impact different body functions

For sufferers in Florida and other parts of the country, brain injuries can have a major effect on their ability to function in different ways, depending on the side of the brain affected. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 2.4 million people suffer brain injuries in the United States as a result of falls, car crashes or assaults. As each side of the brain has a different job, a brain injury on one side or both can bring different symptoms.

Brain injuries may age the brain

People in Florida who sustain brain injuries often suffer from a range of secondary conditions. According to a doctor from Imperial College London, inflammation in the brain after a brain injury could lead to other conditions that could cause further brain damage later on. Some researchers believe that brain injuries may even lead to the development of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's.

Recomendations for the treatment and management of concussions

When a resident of Florida suffers a concussion, certain steps can be taken in order to effectively treat the injury. In March of 2013, the American Academy of Neurology revised its guidelines for the management and evaluation of sports concussions.

Cognitive problems caused by TBI

Florida residents who may have suffered a traumatic brain injury may possibly experience a loss of cognition and mental ability. Thinking skills and mental tasks are sometimes more difficult for people with TBIs. These negative effects are not consistent from person to person, and they may be hard to predict. However, it is common for them to be of long duration or permanent.

Florida family sues school district over son's brain injury

The parents of a high school football player have filed a negligence lawsuit against a Tampa school district in connection with a brain injury that put their son in the hospital. Last year, on Oct. 9, 2013, the highschooler was playing catch on the football field when he hit his head on a paint machine used to line the field.

Understanding the basics of traumatic brain injuries

A traumatic brain injury occurs when an external force impacts the head sufficiently enough to affect the brain's functions. Some Florida residents may not be aware of the extent to which traumatic brain injuries are a public health issue in America.
