Every parent has been in the situation of fearing their child having a concussion after falling while attempting their first steps. These type of falls happen all the time, and the concerns are based on fall-related injuries leading to more severe implications.
Toddlers behaviors create a higher risk for falls and injuries either when they are learning how to walk or once mastered, running and other activities that put them at risk. Preventable measures can ease parent anxiety that a traumatic brain injury could lead to a cause of death and disability in these pediatric age group.
Research has shown that the most common mechanism of injury in a 5-year longitudinal study taken place at the Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago was head injury related. Between 0–16 years of age, the most common mechanism of injury was a fall (75.5%) with post-traumatic seizures developed more commonly in children under two years of age (15.7%) than in older children (11.6% under three years of age, 9.6%, entire group).
However, not only toddlers get injuries of this kind. Sports-related activities among middle-school-aged children could result in concussions as well.
Stopping a child from exploring the world due to fear is impossible. However, a preventable and accessible measure is the purchase of a soft protective helmet.
