Heads Up Concussion
Andrews Sports Medicine is proud to continue the long-standing tradition of educating parents & coaches about youth-related sports injuries. As sports medicine physicians, we continue to learn more and more about the short & long-term effects of sports-related concussions, which is continuing to gain more national attention from the NFL, NCAA and AHSAA within the state of AL. While safety equipment is important, no helmet or gear can totally prevent a concussion. There is no single test or high-tech approach to diagnose a concussion. The signs and symptoms of a concussion can show up immediately after the injury or may not appear or be noticed until hours or days after the injury. Heads Up Concussion_Fact Sheet – Heads Up Concussion – is compliments of the Centers for Disease Control. This is a great FAQ sheet to display on your refrigerator.
