Facts About Concussions

Facts About Concussions

The signs of a concussion aren’t always obvious. Neither is the recovery.

The most important thing to do if someone is injured during a sports activity is to immediately stop playing. They need to avoid any further hits, jolts, shakes, or bumps to the head or spine.

Even a mild concussion should be evaluated by a doctor. Therefore, it is imperative that you get in to see your child’s pediatrician or primary care doctor as soon as possible when they experience anything that even has the potential to be a concussion.

Here are some facts to keep in mind: 

  • More than 85 percent of concussions heal fine, but only if managed correctly in the first days to weeks following the injury.

  • Symptoms may take up to a day to appear after an incident. These symptoms can include sadness, repeating questions, tingling, and trouble falling asleep.

There is always the danger that young athletes may not admit they have a concussion so it'd vital to encourage them to come forward if they have an injury, or if they notice a teammate is injured.

Encourage youth athletes to wear proven, new-age safety gear like the PowerPlus Mouthguard to help disperse concussive forces.
