Concussions in sport are a problem not only at the professional level, but in recreational sport as well. We all think of the danger of concussion in hockey or football, but not many of us consider the risk in activites like cheerleading or volleyball. 

The serious long term impacts of concussion are real. The cumulative damage caused by 'minor' blows to the head are also considered as significant. Here are some facts to consider about concussion:

  • All concussions are serious brain injuries.
  • Concussion can occur without consciousness being lost.
  • The recognition and treatment of concussions is key to prevention of further injury or even death.
  • Concussions can be caused by even minor blows to the head.
  • They can occur from any kind of sport and recreational activity, not only from accidents

The Centers for Disease Control have great resources for specific sports from cheerleading and volleyball, to football and hockey. If you are the parent or coach of a child in sport have a look at the posters.

If you participate in any sport then you should be wearing appropriate head protection and sport specific helmets.
