We hear about a head injury or a concussion happening in sports all the time. There are a lot of people think that concussion is an injury that only happens in contact sports like football and hockey.
But it’s not! Concussions are much more than a sports injury, they’re a life injury. In fact, the most common cause of concussion are falls. Concussions can happen anywhere: in a car accident, slipping on a patch of ice, or on a playground.
Unfortunately, what this means for you is that there isn’t a guaranteed way to prevent concussions. What you CAN do is get educated on concussion signs and symptoms, so you know how to recognize them. Visit a trained healthcare provider right away if you suspect a concussion in yourself or a loved one.
