According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention falls are the leading cause of brain injuries. While violent falls are definitely a matter of concern, less dramatic falls should never be overlooked. Whether you suffer an injury from a minor topple or a serious fall, ignoring the signs of a head injury can have life altering consequences. Symptoms Although a brain injury from a fall takes place on impact, some symptoms don't appear until the bleeding or swelling has reached a certain degree. However, loosing consciousness, becoming confused or becoming sluggish immediately after falling are all indication of a serious head injury.
A concussion occurs when the head sustains a hard blow and the impact jars or shakes the brain inside the skull, intruding on the cerebrum normal activities. Despite the fact that there might be cuts or wounds on the head or face, there might be no other noticeable indications of a brain damage. You don't have to pass out or loss consciousness to have a concussion. A few people will have evident indications of a concussion, such as passing out or forgetting what happened right before the injury. But other people won’t.
Right after receiving a concussion, the symptoms can prove to be very short term and only a temporary thing. (According to Brainline, a few symptoms can include nausea, confusion, increasing headache pains, and even one dilated pupil (“Facts About”)))). These symptoms do not seem very convincing to be dangerous to someone’s life but the long term effects of a head injury can be severe and life threatening, and life altering. For example, according to Nordqvist, he states that after football and hockey players receive a concussion, their brain waves become abnormal and strange, causing your attention skills to be deterred (Nordqvist para 7). These long term effects are extremely similar to Parkinson’s disease.
Even though there are many setbacks to having bradykinesia, it can be helped slow down and stop some of the symptoms. Bradykinesia can come from another disease called Parkinson's (PD). Parkinson's Disease is a disease that can develop over many years. Nobody knows of the cause yet, but there are many treatment options that can help relieve the symptoms. PD is not a fatal disease, but there are many complications to it that makes it a deadly disease.
Some symptoms that are rare but people do get include fever, headache, sensitivity to light, and fatigue. Pain is usually the first symptom of shingles. For some, it can be very intense and mild for others. Depending on where you develop the pain, it can sometimes be mistaken for a symptom of problems affecting the heart, lungs or kidneys. Some people experience shingles pain without ever developing the rash.
Midshaft femur fractures with other fractures on the same limb are also contraindicated, as mentioned previously this can twist the bone and result in further injury. Patients with pelvic bone injuries are not allowed to have traction splints applied to them; there is a large amount of blood loss with pelvic fractures and by applying a traction splint there will be movement that will result in more blood loss. It is also very important to assess the patient’s neurovascular before and after splinting the extremity, this is to know if there are any injuries to the nervous within the
Carpal tunnel is caused by repetitive motions of the wrist such as typing, playing an instrument, or knitting. Pregnancy, diabetes, obesity, and hypothyroidism also contribute to developing carpal tunnel syndrome. To prevent CTS take breaks frequently to rest your hands, keep your hands warm, avoid repetitive hand motions, and do frequent wrist exercises. If you have carpal tunnel syndrome it is best to see a doctor earlier on because it is harder to treat once it gets worse. In severe cases you may lose feeling in your fingers, have a loss of strength, and permanent muscle damage.
Since alcohol can reduce a person’s ability to feel pain, keeping him in a stable position can prevent any further damage to the region. Once he is aware and alert, George would be better able to feel and express the regions where he feels pain and his pain threshold. Once all symptoms are established, the treatment can now begin. Firstly, George should be treated non-surgically. This form of treatment would include medications, physical therapy, wearing a neck brace and reducing physical activities.
The tendo-Achillesmay be tight. X-rays are not helpful because the calcaneal apophysis is frequently fragmented and densein normal children.Treatment depends on the severity of the child’s symptoms and includes relative rest, calf stretching and strengthening exercises and occasionally the use of a heel raise. It is a self limiting condition with no adverse long term sequelae. Osteo-chondral Lesions of the
Short: Concussions and neurodegenerative conditions Descriptive: Modern studies point the link between concussions and the development of neurodegenerative conditions Summary: People who experience a concussion encounter problems with memory and concentration during the whole life. Recent studies confirm that concussions can lead to development of neurodegenerative conditions, such as dementia and Alzheimer's disease later in life. Injuries of the nervous system are of great importance. They are common in war, but also in peacetime, particularly because of the large number of road accidents and accidents at work nowadays. A concussion is a minor brain injury caused by mechanical forces that lead to temporary brain dysfunction.
