It is not breaking news to say that motorcycle accidents have a huge risk of brain injuries. As the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety points out, riding a motorcycle is inherently more dangerous than driving a car. Motorcycles are fast, powerful vehicles that have no structure to protect their riders and as such riders often hit the ground or another vehicle head first in a crash.
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injuries are caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head. A mild traumatic brain injury is better known by the term “concussion.” This causes the brain to bounce around or twist within the skull, possibly hitting against the skull. This can create chemical changes in the brain by stretching and damaging brain cells. Doctors are still struggling with exactly how to define a concussion and how to know when someone can be considered to have recovered.
Traumatic brain injuries account for about 30% of injury deaths in America. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death from brain injuries. This varies by age group. For example, in children aged four and under, assault was the leading cause of brain injury death, as it accounted for in 44% of cases. For children age 5 to 14, motor vehicle crashes accounted for 47% of brain injury deaths. That number shrinks as the population gets older and self-inflicted injuries and then fall-related brain injuries become more common.
Treating the Brain is Hard
The truth is that doctors are still struggling to figure out how to best treat head trauma. Consider for example, the advice from the National Football League. This is a massive organization with incredible resources and access to some of the world’s best doctors. For years, the NFL has been telling players that suffer a concussion to go into a dark room and limit their movement and activities that require attention or concentration. The idea was to avoid further injuring the brain while it healed. This was the cutting edge science just a matter of months ago.
Now, leading concussion specialists have been instructing their patients to exercise or try different balancing exercises to speed the recovery process. Part of the idea is just to fight off the depression, fatigue, and loss of conditioning that comes from hiding in a dark room. Exercise may also improve the flow of blood to help speed recovery from the brain injury. Some doctors still worry about getting back to exercise right away, but other doctors are moving towards starting exercise therapy within days of the concussion.
Of course, a one-time devastating blow from a motorcycle crash is different than the years of smaller blows suffered by football players. According to IIHS, wearing a helmet is by far the most important thing a rider can do. A helmet decreases the severity of head injuries and reduces the risk of dying in a crash by 37%. Helmets also reduce the risk of traumatic brain injuries by about 66%. That is important because there is still little that science can do to restore damaged brains.
