The Routine-less head hits damaging players’ brains, even while they do not cause concussion, according to a new study.

A team led by University of Rochester researchers have been recruited football players over three seasons to investigate the impact of the head and the brain, health and more. Each and every player was wearing the accelerometer in the helmet to capture the forces at play during training sessions and matches throughout the season.

The participants underwent brain scans at the beginning and at the end of the season. In addition, there is a fractional anisotropy allowed researchers to estimate how well the neural signals have been performed through the white matter of the brain tissue.

According to the survey, 38 players took a total of 19,128, hits (head impact), with a 59 per cent occurred in the practice, and 38% occurred in the sector.

The study found that the players had lower measures of fractional anisotropy in their right midbrains, which is a part of the world. Those decreases were related to the number of hits that have turned heads, as opposed to a direct head-on hits, according to the study’s abstract.

“These findings indicate that non-invasive structural MRI of the cause of the problem is a concise index of both clinically silent white matter injury, and a frank concussion,” the authors write in the abstract.
