Healthy Athlete — Concussions

Healthy Athlete — Concussions


– In today’s Healthy Athlete, how to recognize a concussion. Concussions are mild
traumatic brain injuries, and they happen at any sport and should not be taken lightly. Get medical help if
after a fall or collision you have a headache, dizziness, or you just don’t feel right. Coaches should watch for
players who look dazed, move clumsily, seem
confused or not themselves. These athletes should not return to play until cleared by an appropriate
healthcare provider. I’m Elizabeth Lamb with
