Posted by TalkSport on Wednesday, 28 February 2018 16:04:31 There is increasing evidence that a child’s head injury risk increases with age.
A growing body of evidence suggests that children who have been playing in rough terrain may be more prone to head injuries.
More research is needed to better understand why this occurs, but there are several possible explanations.
One explanation may be that the body develops to compensate for the small size of the head, which may limit the brain’s ability to withstand head trauma.
Another explanation may relate to the growth of the brain.
Older children who play in rough conditions are more likely than younger children to have brain injuries.
In a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers found that playing in a rough environment, or in conditions where the head was exposed to high levels of impact, had a positive effect on the brain of children aged between five and nine years.
“The brain is very fragile,” says Dr Robert Kollas, from the University of Sydney’s Department of Neurology.
“It’s only ever going to get stronger over time.
And that’s what this research suggests.
It suggests that if you’re going to play in a more challenging environment, it’s important to consider your risk.
You don’t want to play with a child who’s not going to be able to make any decisions, so it makes sense to consider whether your child has been exposed to some sort of trauma.”
We need to be mindful of our children’s development and if they’re playing in environments where they are going to have to make decisions, like when they’re walking, driving, or sitting, we need to consider that.
“For children aged six to nine years old, the average head injury was about two per cent, according to research published in The Lancet in 2016.
That means a head impact could result in serious brain injury.
Researchers say it’s not uncommon for children to get concussions while playing in certain types of playgrounds.
A number of factors can impact on head injury, including how a child moves around and whether the environment they’re in is too hard for them to walk, sit or stand in.
There is also the issue of whether a child can stand or walk while playing with a head injured child.
“Children are not always able to move around with the same level of agility that we see in a healthy child.” “
We know that playing with children who are injured is not a fun experience,” AISPE’s CEO, Dr Kate Farrar, says.
“Children are not always able to move around with the same level of agility that we see in a healthy child.”
However, some children may experience symptoms of concussion, such as dizziness, confusion and headaches, depending on the severity of the injury.
“It’s important that we remember that children with concussion should be supported,” Dr Kollis says.
“[Children who have concussion] are also not alone.
It’s important for parents to have their children in their care as soon as possible and to be prepared to support them.”
It is important to remember that the head is fragile and children who can’t stand or stand and walk well, may have difficulty balancing or falling on their head, for example.
Parents should discuss their child’s health and physical wellbeing with their child, their carers, or any other appropriate health professionals before starting play.
It’s also important to be aware of the impact that a head trauma has on the child’s behaviour and learning, Dr Kossas says.
“There are some children who may need intervention in terms of the amount of contact they have with their head,” he says.
“If a child is doing this and has a head injuries, they need to get support and guidance.”
