ConcussionA concussion is a short-term impairment of neurologic or brain function caused by a direct blow to the head, face or neck, or an indirect blow to another part of the body that transmits an acceleration or deceleration force to the brain.

Over the past decade, sports related concussion has received much attention in the media as well as in the research labs.  As the number of young people participating in sports grows, so will the number of sports-related injuries.  Many concussions go unreported every year for a variety of reasons. But the truth is that brief symptoms such as dizziness, memory loss, feeling in a fog and headache following a blow to the head is a concussion.

House Bill 284 creates new protocols for informing parents about the dangers of concussions and for identifying and treating players with head injuries. To read the bill in its entirety, click here
