Head and spinal cord injuries are among the most serious kinds of damage the human body can experience. You may be at risk for this potentially debilitating type of injury when you engage in sports that involve a risk of falls or collisions, such as rock climbing, football, or bicycling. Fortunately, you can protect yourself by wearing a suitable helmet whenever you take part in these types of sports. This fact sheet developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) provides more information about bicycle helmets and the protection they provide.
