Home | Medical-Newswire.Com: Keeps Concerned Visitors Updated on Traumatic Brain Injury Developments

(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 04, 2007 ) DENVER, CO -- After last week's testimony to Congress from former National Football League players on the effects of repeated traumatic brain injuries (TBI), is pleased to remind readers that information about this and other cutting-edge brain injury issues is always available for free at’s brain injury information portal. Traumatic brain injuries are injuries to the head from a hard impact or a piercing wound such as a bullet. They are a serious public health issue, affecting more than 1.4 million Americans each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Brain injuries can have drastic effects on a victim's speech, mobility, memory, intelligence and even personality. And because brain tissue cannot regenerate, brain damage can be permanent and irreversible – as sometimes the only treatment option is therapy that teaches the victim to live with a new disability.The NFL players' testimony to a House Judiciary subcommittee on June 26th centered on the effects of repeated traumatic brain injuries -- tragically common in professional football -- on a player's ability to live a normal life after retirement. Scientists now know that each blow to the brain, even if it is minor, magnifies the effect of each subsequent blow. That is, a concussion that could be minor on a person without a history of head injuries could cause much more serious damage to a person who had absorbed several previous blows. At's comprehensive TBI information portal, visitors can view informational articles about this and many other aspects of TBI, keep up to date on relevant news and research at the TBI blog, read government announcements and news feeds related to the issue, and look at jury verdicts and settlements in any traumatic brain injury lawsuits that may have been decided recently. And, like all the content on, the comprehensive traumatic brain injury portal is completely free of charge. Brain injuries are far from the only timely, relevant legal issue that continues to track for its visitors free of charge.
