Happy Holidays and be safe

This is the time of year we have to be safe, and while driving, be extra careful. Accident prevention is a must. A car accident can produce  a TBI ,or  traumatic brain injury. A sudden stop can cause what is know as a "coup". The brain moves forward forcefully and hits the side of the skull. Then what happens next is after the brain moves forward, it bounces backward and hits the opposite side of the skull. This is called a "contrecoup". Whiplash is the term, most often used. A bruise or "contusion" on the brain can result from both sites of impacts.  So coup and contrecoup can occur at the same time. The treatments for these head injuries depends on the severity. Most injuries have a favorable recovery, without the need for rehab or long term care. So, lets have a wonderful holiday, and drive safely!
