Brain Injury & Stroke- Amusement Rides causes further brain damage

by | Dec 21, 2009 | Brain Rehabilitation, Practical Suggestions | 2 comments

I was recently in Orlando, FL for a family gathering and we went to one of the major Amusement Parks.   They have notices for fear of heights, fear of fog, effect of strobe lights, along with caution for neck and back injuries.   What was missing was notices that if you had a concussion, tbi or stroke, being on almost 90% of the rides that have acceleration/deceleration can cause further brain damage.   Thus,  I’ve written a recommendation that such a notice needs to be included.   I hope someone take stock of this.  I did avoid those rides and did enjoy the time with the family.

Wishing everyone Happy Holidays.
