Researchers not any closer to treatment for brain injury

According to recent statistics, an estimated 1.5 million Americans suffer a head injury every year. Traumatic brain injury is a serious health problem, particularly for young men. This type of injury can happen to anyone, in Massachusetts or elsewhere, and researchers are constantly looking for effective treatments.

Awareness growing of risks posed for brain injury in football

High school sports, including football, have provided the background for cherished memories and grandiose storytelling for reunions. One aspect that is likely glossed over is the numbers of players who may have suffered a serious brain injury from concussions. Recently, the risks posed to high school athletes have become a major consideration for most Massachusetts school athletic programs.

Researchers develop new methods to study effects of head injury

Medicine has made tremendous strides in the past several years in researching new treatments for a wide variety of illnesses and medical conditions. One area of medicine, however, has been difficult to fully understand -- the effects of and treatments for head injury. There are many patients in Massachusetts and elsewhere who may benefit from some recent developments.

Group working to warn about concussion injury and soccer

After so many have been caught up in the excitement of the World Cup matches recently, the potential dangers have also garnered more attention. A player on the German team received a blow to one side of his head. After deciding to return to play, he was later assisted off the field because he had most likely suffered a concussion injury. Now, an organization located in Massachusetts is sounding the alarm about children and soccer.

Serious head injury possible for 2 women hurt at TD Garden

Hockey games are sometimes thought to be fairly aggressive affairs as two teams battle it out to determine a winner. The violence is usually confined to the hockey rink, however, and does not tend to involve the fans. Two women who spent the end of a recent game at a Massachusetts hospital -- each with a possible head injury or other physical damage -- might dispute that claim.

Massachusetts woman suffers head injury from police car

The head is arguably one of the most important parts of the human body. In the event of an accident involving pedestrians, with a vehicle fully armored and the pavement unwilling to give, this can make a head injury all the more terrifying. As one Massachusetts pedestrian found out, head injuries can change everything in the blink of an eye.

The closed head injury victim suffers life-changing restrictions

Brain injuries present demanding challenges for preparation of personal injury negotiations and settlement with the wrongdoer's counsel or insurer. Closed head injury in Massachusetts and throughout the country is not always easily proved, and must be established instead by medical inferences and circumstantial probabilities. In such cases, neuropsychologists and similar practitioners are sometimes used to establish a physiological connection with the particular symptoms that the injured victim is suffering.

NFL and retired players settle lawsuit claiming brain injury

Traumatic brain injury remains a bit of a mystery. That may be why 4,500 retired NFL players entered into a $765 million settlement with the NFL as compensation for brain injuries from repetitive concussions. The lawsuit was filed by the former players to obtain compensation for the symptoms of brain injury experienced in retirement and attributed to years of repetitive head concussions. In Massachusetts and elsewhere, the scientific information about traumatic concussion injury remains limited, but there are growing signs of a direct link between concussion and long-term cognitive and psychiatric consequences.

Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts warns bicyclists

With the current summer weather, many people may be thinking about taking their bicycles out for a spin. However, bicyclists should be careful since 630 people die from a head injury related to riding bicycles annually. Over 50,000 people experience bicycle-related head injuries nationwide every year. This is why the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts (BIA-MA) is adamant about its warning to not overlook safety when riding a bicycle.
