A new study has identified certain biological changes that occur on a microscopic level when an individual suffers a serious Brain Injury, like a concussion. They also concluded that brain damage occurs even when injuries are incurred that are considered less serious.
An article published by U-T San Diego explained how when a person sustains a blow to the head, neurons, which transmit information throughout the cells of the brain, can suffer damage. The effects of this damage can be seen even in cases that did not rate as concussions.
While time and rest normally repairs the damage, researchers have also identified how repeat injuries can result in the development of more serious conditions. When brain injuries continue to be inflicted, the brain begins a process of destroying itself, known as apoptosis. Overtime, this destruction leads to the build up of certain proteins that have been identified in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.
The damage can occur faster than one may think as well. A study of college athletes showed that just three significant brain injuries could result in an increased risk of future problems.
The Ohio Personal Injury Attorneys with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy urge anyone who believes they have sustained a traumatic brain injury to immediately seek medical attention. Doing so could help to drastically reduce the amount of damage that is done.
