What is a concussion?
A concussion is the most common traumatic brain injury and initially least serious. In most cases, a concussion occurs after a sudden blow to the head that causes a violent jarring of the brain. A hit to the body can also have a similar effect on the brain.
How can you prevent a concussion?
The very nature of head injuries is unpredictability, making absolute prevention impossible. Precautions such as wearing a seat belt, exercise and education exist to minimize the risks and keep the brain as safe as possible.
Don't let a concussion ruin your game
Hiding a concussion can cause a lifetime of disability. Report your bump on the head because it's better to miss one game than a whole season. The PA Safety in Youth Sports Act requires a medical professional clear you before return-to-play is allowed. Know the signs. Play smart. Get cleared.
