Avoiding the common risks that cause traumatic brain injury

Oklahomans understand that brain injuries have the potential for permanent damage that leave victims facing a lifetime of constant medical care. Many people have seen both military personnel and athletes who sustained traumatic brain injuries face severe impairments. Even if victims do recover, the road is often long, difficult and expensive. As of now, there are no effective treatments to reverse the damage from most types of traumatic brain injury. Doctors can only prevent injuries from getting worse through surgery and medication.

Signs of Oklahoma brain injuries can help lead to treatment

One type of injury has become strongly associated with both Oklahoma military veterans and athletes: brain injury. The injury typically results from a violent blow to the head. Signs and symptoms of brain damage can manifest themselves immediately or days later. For Oklahoma residents who may be concerned about loved ones sustaining such injuries, the following signs and symptoms can help them decide when treatment is needed.

Game-induced brain injury suddenly derails NFL player's career

Anyone who has to suddenly give up something they love can be forgiven for feeling devastated. Fans of NFL football in Oklahoma may be particularly understanding of the case of Russell Allen, now a former linebacker who used to play for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Just four months after taking a hit during a game against the Buffalo Bills, the 27-year-old Allen has retired after five seasons because of a brain injury.
