Most Common Motorcycle Injuries
As a motorcyclist, it’s statistically inevitable that you will be
involved in at least one accident during your riding life. Even if you
consider yourself the safest rider in the world, the numbers are against
you. We will be going through some of the most common injuries sustained
by motorcyclists and provide you information about how to diagnose each
injury, how to treat them, and how long you’ll be sidelined.
Common motorcycle injuries include:
It’s very important to wear a helmet at all times when you’re
riding. The brain is one of the most delicate organs in the human body,
susceptible to receive different levels of damage, such as mild
traumatic brain injury to a catastrophic one.
- If you experience a prolonged loss of consciousness, anticipate being transported
to a hospital and get treated by a specialist in order to determine the
severity of the injury.
- Get yourself checked out immediately if you feel headaches, nausea, and
memory loss if you were involved in an accident
Broken bones and spine injuries
A broken neck, back, or pelvis can be quite severe. A broken neck or back
can potentially lead to
spinal injuries, paralysis, and a lifetime of difficulty moving. A broken hip can result
in having to use walking sticks or crutches for the remainder of your life.
- When you fall off a motorcycle, you will instinctively attempt to land
on your arms to brace yourself from completely falling. Unfortunately,
this tends to lead to broken arms and risks. Often lasting six weeks or
longer, you can re-straighten your broken limbs by casting them. The same
procedure pertains to broken legs.
- With the proper protective gear, you can limit the vulnerability to road
rash tremendously. Treat road rash by thorough cleaning of the wounded
area. You may experience discomfort for weeks and you’ll be left
with a patch of light colored skin where the abrasion occurred.
