In this episode of the 60-Second Podcast, Dina Fine Maron reports how the patient experienced intense headaches a month after whipping his head violently back and forth. Later, attending doctors discovered a chronic subdural hematoma, which is an injury where blood collects under the brain’s outer membrane, in the right side of his brain. The injury required surgical repair.
The report discusses how headbanging, although fun and fairly harmless, can pose health and safety risks if carried out too far. Some of the dangers include whiplash and neck or head injuries, not unlike the aforementioned case.
