2018 – “Motorcycle Helmets and Cervical Spine Injuries: a 5-year Experience at a Level 1 Trauma Center.

In this study, the authors investigate the association of helmet use with the incidence and severity of cervical spine injury.   The results of this study demonstrate that motorcycle helmet use does not increase the risk of CSI.  In addition, the results provide further evidence that helmet use should be implemented to reduce traumatic brain injury, crash-related mortality, cost of hospitalization, and CSI in motorcyclists.
