Concussions and Sports: What Parents Need to Know

concussions-and-sports-what-parents-need-to-knowSports are a wonderful way for children and teens to stay physically fit, make friends, and learn to be team players. But accidents happen, and concussion is a real risk. That’s why Marin County instituted its Concussion Management Program.

In this podcast, MarinHealth Athletic Trainer Marcella Shorty explains how she assesses potential concussions right on the sports field, based on the Sports Concussion Assessment Tool, a step-by-step evaluation for a potential head injury. Some youngsters may not realize they have concussion symptoms, while others try to mask the symptoms so they can get back in the game. Shorty makes sure kids are benched and parents are called so their child can be evaluated by a healthcare professional.
