Traumatic Brain Injury the Focus of American Headache Society Scientific Conference
Date:6/20/2012

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2012

The impact of traumatic injuries to the brain – whether sustained in combat or on the playing fields of America’s schools – is a major topic for international migraine specialists the week of June 18 as they gather in Los Angeles for the 54th Annual Scientific Sessions of the American Headache Society. This is among many timely issues concerning headache, migraine, and brain injuries on the four-day agenda, which runs through Sunday morning, June 24.

“As migraine specialists, we cannot ignore the fact that traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an increasingly common medical problem today and that those who experience severe and untreated blows to the brain may end up with serious neurological damage and long-lasting medical and psychological problems,” said Elizabeth Loder, MD, MPH, president of the American Headache Society (AHS) and Chief of the Division of Headache and Pain in the Department of Neurology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. “We owe it to our nation’s military as well as to our children in contact sports to raise awareness of TBI and make this issue a national health priority.”     

Dr. Loder cited a 60% increase in emergency room visits by adolescents for sports-related brain injuries over the last decade, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control late last year.

“The rising incidence of these injuries, which may have serious long-term consequences for many young people, is a public health problem of epidemic proportion,” she said. “High school and collegiate athletic departments are developing programs to minimize the risks but much more is needed to prevent and recognize severe concussions related to high-impact contact sports. These injuries may result in brain damage that can cause persistent severe headache, emotional problems such as depression and anxiety, sleep disturbances, memory and learning impairment, an
