Housecall for Health: Teen Concussions
Concussions are a hot topic when it comes to teens and sports, and new research warns that football players aren’t the only ones who need to be concerned about the possibility of head injuries.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
Although football is normally in the spotlight when it comes to concussions in teens, new research shows that other high school sports also carry a high risk. A study from the Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Ohio found that girls’ soccer and basketball, boys’ wrestling, ice hockey and lacrosse also made the list.
Experts warn that head injuries don’t just happen in contact sports, but also added the benefits of physical activity in kids outweighs the risk of concussion.
