Most Team Sports Carry a Risk of Concussion
Injuries that require some form of concussion treatment can occur in a wide variety of sports. They are most seen in “collision sports” like (American) football, ice hockey, and martial arts, where hard physical contact is part of the game. However, concussions in sports like baseball and basketball can also occur. Even sports like volleyball and tennis have risks of accidental collisions that can lead to concussions. All of these sports have fairly strict concussion protocols to assess when a player may need concussion treatment.
Concussion Treatment May Be Critical to an Athlete’s Long-Term Health
Most concussions are rather mild and allow for complete concussion recovery with proper concussion treatment. Concussion recovery time varies, but doesn’t usually last more than 10 days. However, in some cases concussion can lead to concussion syndrome. Health risks range from persistent headaches to memory loss to brain swelling. The severity of concussion syndrome is not related to the severity of the concussion, but the concussion protocols taken. Even a mild concussion can cause major problems when proper concussion treatment is not followed. For example, second impact syndrome, a second concussion that occurs soon after an initial concussion, can lead to fatal long-term damage. In addition, an athlete who sustains a concussion is also at risk of developing post concussion syndrome, which is characterized by persistent symptoms such as headache, attention deficits, irritability, and changes in mood. NeuroSport’s neurocognitive baseline testing can help your physician, coach, and trainer set up proper concussion protocols. To lessen these symptoms or avoid them entirely, prompt and effective concussion treatment is critical.
