While the rest of the nation watches leaves fall and cozies up in warmer clothes, Texans only hint that fall is upon them is the beginning of football season. Amongst all the tailgating rivalries, what is really getting attention this year is head and brain injuries suffered from football games.
If you or your children play football, it is important to be cognizant of head and brain injuries. New technology is showing how devastating just one concussion can be. But not all injuries are immediately noticeable, making them even more dangerous.
For some head injuries, the problems are immediate and obvious. Unfortunately though, many concussions or other brain injuries go undiagnosed because of lack of symptoms. It is therefore important for family members to be on the lookout for any strange behavior or possible symptoms a doctor may not catch.
Possible symptoms from a head injury can affect memory, sleep, and emotions. If a football player suddenly has difficulty thinking clearly, concentrating, or remembering new information, this should be communicated to a doctor. They should also seek medical attention if they have mood changes or trouble sleeping. They may also have physical symptoms of a brain injury if they are nauseous, vomiting, experiencing headaches, or are frequently dizzy and off balance.
To avoid the risks of a dangerous blog clot, it is important to communicate these symptoms to a doctor immediately. If a football player suffers permanent damage from a head or brain injury, they should work with a lawyer to recover damages.
