Brain Injuries Archives

Researchers may be able to stop brain injury inflammation

Head injuries can easily happen as a result of car accidents or slip-and-fall accidents in West Virginia. Unfortunately, when a brain injury happens, it triggers nervous system inflammation, and this can further damage the health of the brain. Researchers, however, are exploring the possibility of preventing this inflammatory response through targeting a certain brain cell type.

Guidelines for testing, treating traumatic brain injury changing

Experts say that, over the past few years, the number of instances of injuries to the brain has increased. As a result, United States government officials are changing how traumatic brain injury is tested for and treated. This will no doubt have an impact on individuals in West Virginia who suffer these types of injuries in the future.

Traumatic brain injury may increase suicide risk

People in West Virginia and elsewhere who have suffered head injuries may be impacted by the physical symptoms of these types of injuries, such as dizziness and memory problems. However, these injuries can also cause psychological problems. A recent research study suggested that traumatic brain injury sufferers have a two-times greater chance of dying by suicide compared with those without a history of brain injury.

Brain injury may lead to mental health problems

Injuries to the brain can easily happen as a result of serious accidents, such as motor vehicle collisions, in West Virginia. However, these injuries leave more than just physical scars. Research shows that a brain injury can also affect a person's mental health long term.

More research being done on female traumatic brain injury

When people study or talk about those who have suffered injuries to the brain, they often think about male soldiers or players in the National Football League. Unfortunately, women have not been well represented in research on traumatic brain injury. However, the VA's brain bank is trying to change this -- a move that may have a positive impact on female brain injury victims in West Virginia and other parts of the United States.

Traumatic brain injury can be devastating

Most people in West Virginia and other parts of the United States do not lead daredevil lives as many athletes do. However, this does not mean they are not at risk of suffering traumatic brain injuries. A traumatic brain injury can still happen in the right situation, and unfortunately, it can have devastating consequences for the person who suffers it.

Traumatic brain injury can have long-term impacts

Each day, more than 130 people pass away as a result of injuries, including injuries to the brain. Individuals in West Virginia and elsewhere who are fortunate enough to live after suffering traumatic brain injury unfortunately do not always escape unscathed. Severe and even moderate cases of brain injury can lead to lifelong problems.

Brain Glue may help those with traumatic brain injury

Brain injuries can easily occur as a result of a car accident or a slip-and-fall accident resulting from another party's negligence in West Virginia. Unfortunately, these types of injuries can have a negative impact on one's life by leading to speech or cognitive issues, for example. Fortunately, university researchers recently developed a substance called Brain Glue that could one day help with treating traumatic brain injury.

Technology can help to check for traumatic brain injury

Brain injuries can easily happen due to a fall or a car accident in West Virginia, for example. Unfortunately, these types of injuries can have long-lasting impacts on one's quality of life. However, a brand-new device may make it possible to check for traumatic brain injury, including bleeds and concussions, in less than one hour.

Traumatic brain injury can occur without structural brain damage

Concussions are types of brain injuries where the organs themselves do not necessarily sustain physical damage but where their functions are affected. In other words, when a patient in West Virginia suffers a traumatic brain injury, his or her brain stops working correctly for a brief moment in time. The individual experiences several symptoms quickly, and these symptoms resolve over time.
