If you asked the people you know what they’ve heard in the news about sports concussions, they’d likely cite reports about concussion concerns related to professional American football. They aren’t wrong. There are a multitude of studies, reports, opinion editorials and feelings on this very subject.

It’s also important to remember that collisions and/or blunt force directly to the head isn’t the only way a concussion can be sustained. (July 9, 2018)
