Athletes! Don't Ignore Mild Head Trauma
No doubt, playing sports is one of the best feelings in the world. However, it is is also one of the most dangerous activities to do. This is especially to those who are in the professional MMA and adolescent rugby industry. A new study by the researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Stanford University, and Trinity College in Dublin found evidence of damage to the brain's protective barrier - even without a reported concussion.
The study followed the MMA fighters were examined pre-fight for a baseline and again within 120 hours following the competitive fight. The researchers also examined the rugby players in pre-season and again post-season or post-match in a subset of cases.
