Many winter activities can increase a person's risk of receiving a concussion, now known as a Traumatic Brain Injury, such as ice skating, hanging holiday lights and skiing. Now it is being discovered that these TBI injuries can create serious short term and long term issues.
According to the Center of Disease Control, a TBI is caused by a bump, bolt or jolt that disrupts any normal function of the brain. These brain injuries can range from moderate to severe where there is prolonged amnesia.
Every year, nearly 275,000 people are hospitalized for brain injuries and 52,000 people a year die from TBI. This is why it is important to wear helmets when necessary to protect yourself.
