Preventing concussion injury in sports is nearly impossible. Sports are second only to motor vehicle crashes as the leading cause of traumatic brain injury among people aged 15 to 24 years.

This is a massive issue of great concern to all parents.

An estimated 300,000 sport-related traumatic brain injuries, predominantly concussions, occur annually in the United States. There are special helmets in development with space age technology and shock-absorbing padding which means this “problem” injury could cease to exist.  

Athletes at all levels, even kids, fear losing their spot on the roster, being picked on and centered out. The stigma of reporting concussions needs to be removed. Pressure on players to perform while having concussion symptoms must be addressed.

We need to get our head in the game on concussions. Join us LIVE with Dustin Fink of The Concussion Blog on Wednesday February 27 @ 7PM at BEYONDtheCheers on blogtalkradio. Dial-in TOLL FREE 1-877-357-2448 in Canada and United States to ask a question and talk with us or e-mail in advance.
