Feb. 12, 2010- As many as 3.8 million sports and recreation related concussions are estimated to occur in the United States each year.
A concussion is a brain injury caused by a bump or blow to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Even what may seem like a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. Coaches, parents or anyone involved in the care of young athletes play a vital role in identifying and responding to concussions. Those who play school or recreational sports, ranging from football, basketball, hockey and lacrosse to cheerleading and gymnastics are susceptible to a concussion.
