Concussions are very serious brain injuries that can occur in virtually any walk of life, from a mundane activity such as walking, a slip and fall accident, or in sport. Sports come with a risk of injuries and concussions are a particular occurrence that still has a mystique and misinformation surrounding it. In recent years, with more awareness of the severity of concussions, research of brain injuries has been developing fast. Knowledge of what concussions are and how to care for concussions has become more widespread but the information can be hard to find and slow to reach anyone who’s specialty is not concussion treatment.
