A concussion is a minor traumatic brain injury that may occur when the head hits an object, or a moving object strikes the head. It can affect how the brain works for a while. A concussion can lead to a bad headache, changes in alertness, or loss of consciousness.
Perhaps you play a contact sport or maybe you have children that do? If you are a fan of contact sports, you must know that concussions are becoming a very serious problem.
Many professional sports (NFL included) are taking the concussion issue very seriously, implementing programs, more strict regulations and improved equipment to help reduce concussion risk. But, this still is not fixing the issue.
The Brain Doctor, Dr. Harry Kerasidis, joins Andrea and Lisa to discuss the seriousness of this issue and provides information on symptoms and how to treat a concussion. Dr. Kerasidis also explains how concussions are affecting sports on the professional level.
