Description

Do you know how to work with Concussions?

  • 50% of National Football League (NFL) players will sustain a concussion this season and 74% will suffer multiple injuries.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that there are up to 3.8 million sports-related concussions reported in the U.S. annually.
  • Players with three or more concussions are 3-6 times more likely to suffer further concussions.
  • Test scores of mental agility and memory drop with each successive concussion.
  • Concussion can impair the ability to learn (now and in the future).
  • Female athletes are 64% more likely to get a concussion.
  • 41% of concussed athletes return to play too early.
  • 10% of concussed players lose consciousness.
  • The amount of force required to fracture a skull is equivalent to falling from a standing position and hitting your head on the floor. Imagine what happens to your skull when 250-300 lb. players collide at full speed.
  • Most concussions cannot be seen with Computed Tomography (CT) scans, Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI) or cranial X-rays.
  • There is a concussion-related Emergency Room visit every three minutes.
  • Athletes 12-15 years old make up 47% of the sports-related concussions seen in hospital Emergency Rooms.
