Concussion in Sports

Fast Facts

A concussion is a brain injury and all are serious.

Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness.

Recognition and proper response to concussions when they first occur can help prevent further injury or even death.

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury,

or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head

that can change the way your brain normally works.

Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body

that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth.

Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what

seems to be mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity.

So, all coaches, parents, and athletes

need to learn concussion signs and symptoms

and what to do if a concussion occurs.

Go to CDC website for more information on how

to recognize a concussion and what to do if one

occurs. All people who participate in sports

need to be aware of this a concussion is a

form of brain injury.

I would like to use this article to wish all my brain injury sisters and brothers a happy New Year!

If we support each other we can grow and build

our lifes,  the only determinant of our limitations is ourselves.

Keep trying, Keep working, keep building, keep thinking of happy thoughts, remember to over-come the negative.

God is abundant and we are open to recieve!!!!
