For years the long lasting effects of head injuries and concussions were rarely understood. However with the recent media coverage regarding NFL concussions it’s nice to see expanded research in the field. I wanted to share with our GTB&S family an informative article that discusses a recent study of the long term consequences of head injuries on sleep patterns. It was particularly interesting to read that sleep patterns can be affected for more than 18 months after a traumatic head injury. Hopefully with more research and studies like the one our medical community can better serve and treat their patients.
