Traumatic Brain Injury Research 2018 Report
Brain injury research has exploded over the past few years. In the process we are learning more about the consequences of brain trauma, which are much more concerning than what had been generally understood by the average person. Remember when we referred to a concussion as “having your bell rung”. Those days should be a distant memory.
Attorney Jennifer Jones, who works for us on such projects from her home in Atlanta, recently completed this eleven page report of the current brain injury research. One study which should grab the attention of any parent or grandparent looked at the effects of sub-concussive impacts, ones that do not result in a concussion, of just one season of youth football. They followed children eight to thirteen years old and did studies of their brain before and after a single season.
Quoting Jennifer’s paper, “in layman’s terms, the researchers found a relationship between sub-concussive head trauma and alterations in the integrity of the white matter, the part of the brain critical for information coordination, and communication, even in the absence of a clinically diagnosed concussion.”
This is just some of the startling research in this report. If you would like to download a free copy of Jennifer's report, fill out the form below.
