Super seniors will in majority will have shrunken brain creating 1-2 inch space around the brain. If we remember anatomy brain is virtually hanging from the vessels , these vessels are fragile. All whiplash movements at neck create some time leak in brain followed with oedema. We get varietes of findings. All Supra seniors must be belted and sit in car in rear seat. Not to travel on cycle two/three wheeler . High impact movement at home. Carefully implement exercise process. Avoid anger , constant cough sneeze. Sudden rise in abdominal pressure. Not to venture on steps without support. Think 10 times before head neck massage. This info is based on 40 Supra senior patients where 10% only survived.
