A chilling medical study, reported in Science Daily, described the findings of a new study presented November 29, 2016 at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The study used specialized MRI scans to examine high school football players brains before and after one season of football play. The MRIs revealed changes in brain tissue which correlated with exposure to head impacts even though the players were not diagnosed with “a concussion.” The results showed a significant relationship between head impact exposure and changes in the brain’s white matter. To read that in the press release should fill you with understanding (if you’ve had head trauma” and dread if you’re the parent of a high school football player. The “white matter” that had “changes”? That’s the nerves inside your brain that hook up all the different parts of your brain so you can function. The “changes”? That’s medical speak for “permanent damage to the brain.”
Using devices installed into the helmets of the players which measured impact, the researchers were able to measure the impacts sustained by the high schoolers during single 4 month high school foot ball season and compare it with the before and after MRIs of the players’ brains. The clear finding: permanent brain injuries without any diagnosis of concussion.
This is important to you if you’ve been injured in a bicycle, motorcycle or automobile crash in Florida. Why? Because this study disproves the common notion foisted on injured people by insurance adjusters, insurance defense lawyers and insurance doctors they hire. They say: “It’s just a concussion, you’ll get over it.” To back that up those insurance folks all say: “Well, football players get head impacts and concussions all the time and it doesn’t affect them.”
This research proves that starting with the very first season of high school football, trauma to the human brain causes permanent injury. Just like the trauma your brain suffered in your crash. It’s a real injury, with real effects and real consequences that, if you have had head trauma you are dealing with it. No one seems to get it.
I do. I get it.
If you’ve had that brain trauma injury from a crash and have been told you have “just a concussion,” or “you’ll get over it.” You know something’s wrong with your brain and that it’s not “right.”
I know too.
