Sports Concussion

  • A concussion is a mild brain injury, which is usually not life threatening. However, every concussion is serious.
  • Once an individual sustains a concussion, he or she is more susceptible to a future concussion. Rest is important following a concussion.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer educational material for coaches, parents, athletes, medical professionals and school personnel.
