Sports concussion is a major topic these days. I will talk about the diagnosis and treatment for this important type of brain injury in a future blog, but in the meantime I wanted to share with you some information.

This video is from a recent interview aired on our local CBS affiliate. It highlights symptoms of a concussion and gives some general information on how they are diagnosed, how we determine when someone might be safe to return to play, and risks of resuming sports too soon.

Like the blog, this is another example of how we try to "get the word out" regarding traumatic brain injuries.
