How can I avoid the effects of a brain injury?

Brain injuries can be caused by a wide range of factors, including accidents, acts of violence, and sports. There is no way to entirely cut out the risk brain injury from your life, but there are ways in which you can significantly reduce the risk.

Read through the following tips to learn how you can avoid brain injuries:

  • Wear safety gear: Whether you are riding a bike to the neighbor's or practicing your skateboarding moves, it is crucial that you always wear the appropriate protective gear. Even constructions sites can pose serious risk for brain injuries, making hard hats essential.
  • Avoid dangerous activities or sports: While many people love the game of football, there is no denying the scientific connection between heavy contact sports and brain injuries. Especially if a child is young, it may be best to keep them out of contact sports until an older age. Cliff jumping can also be a dangerous activity, especially with unknown levels of water and rocks in the surrounding areas.
  • Drive defensively: One of the biggest causes of brain injuries is car accidents. By wearing seatbelts at all times and driving defensively, you may be able to cut down on your risk of getting into an accident or suffering serious injuries from an unpreventable one.
  • Keep a close eye on your children: Unfortunately, children often suffer from brain injuries when playing. By keeping a close eye on your children while on the playground or other areas, you can ensure that they avoid the risk of an accident.
  • Report domestic violence right away: Domestic violence often starts out as verbal abuse or small actions. Eventually, those small abuses can turn into harder hits and more dangerous actions that could lead to brain injuries. By reporting these incidents right away, you may be able to prevent injury.
