TCB Question…

25 Oct

Was thinking during my daily commute (always dangerous) and thought that maybe if I proposed this question on the blog, we could get some great comments/emails.

Here is the question:

If there are traumatic forces to the head/neck area can you have a neck injury WITHOUT a brain injury?

For years (as long as anyone can remember) we as athletic trainers have always been told that if you have a head injury, suspect a neck injury.  It may actually be the other way around, no?

Comment here or send email to theconcussionblog@comcast.net and I will re-post with/without names…

    I would think it’s a rare occurrence but there can be c-spine damage without causing a concussion, usually in a rotation-type injury.
