How can brain injuries be avoided?

If you or one of your loved ones suffer a traumatic brain injury, life may become very different. From memory loss to difficulty concentrating, brain injuries often have serious consequences for people in San Bernardino, California, and the rest of the nation. Furthermore, the full extent of the injury may not be known until years later, when problems start appearing. As a result, it is important to focus on prevention and immediately address a head injury.

If you have young children, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discusses a number of ways that you can lower the likelihood of them suffering a brain injury. For starters, it is important to understand the car seat guidelines for your child and ensure that they are buckled in properly every time you take to the road. Also, you should never drive while intoxicated due to drug use or alcohol and you should wear a seat belt whenever you get behind the wheel or ride in a vehicle. If your child participates in contact sports, skateboards, rides horses or rides a bicycle, they should wear a helmet at all times. Additionally, you should wear a helmet when participating in these activities or other potentially dangerous forms of recreation.

For seniors, the risk of brain injuries can be lessened by increasing lighting in a home and eliminating clutter on the floor to prevent tripping. Additionally, setting up grab bars and non-slip mats in the shower can help lower the chances of you slipping and hitting your head. If you ever hit your head and think that you may have suffered a brain injury, seeking treatment at once is imperative.
