Anyone who watches the news has heard about concussions. Concussions may seem like the trendy diagnosis right now, but these brain injuries must be taken seriously. Unlike bruises, sprains or breaks that can be easily seen on an X-ray or other imaging scan, concussions can be sneaky. Adequate healing time is essential, especially in a young brain.
Indiana Fire Juniors takes concussions very seriously. We work hand-in-hand with trainers from Methodist Sports Medicine to ensure that our athletes are examined thoroughly at the time of the injury and referred for appropriate treatment. We reached out to Nathan Hills, Director of Athletic Training Services for Methodist Sports Medicine at Grand Park, for more information on concussions.
