Ex-football players fight for compensation for brain injuries

More and more athletes in Ontario and other provinces and territories want action to be taken by sports authorities to prevent head injuries. Many ex-participants in contact sports suffer the long-term consequences of multiple brain injuries caused by concussions. Arland Bruce is one victim who is now fighting for compensation of concussion-related damages.

Brain Injuries: Collaborative research may improve outcomes

The Alzheimer Society says over 564,000 people in Ontario and other provinces and territories in Canada have dementia. Reportedly, Alzheimer's is one of over 1,000 diseases, injuries and disorders that affect the brain. Canadians are said to be leaders among the world's top researchers. They are seeking more information to help them to understand all the intricate workings of the brain as well as the potential disorders and brain injuries that affect it.

Brain injuries suffered 35 years ago still cause hardship

Concussions are a potentially severe health problem. This issue has persisted for decades because even with all the medical and scientific advances, the fact that concussions are brain injuries that could have long-term consequences is often ignored. This misconception has not changed much over the past 30-odd years. The wife of an Ontario man who suffered an undiagnosed brain injury in 1983 explained the family's suffering since then.

Brain injuries: Damage still evident 3 months after concussion

Although youth hockey leagues have established measures to prevent hockey players from returning to the ice too soon after concussions, ongoing research into sports-related brain injuries indicates that existing protocols may not provide enough protection. Doctors at Western University in Ontario say they studied detailed images of the brains of 15-year-old hockey players who had suffered concussions. What they found showed that players were cleared to play while they were still experiencing aftereffects of the brain injuries.
