Parents Be On The Lookout For These Brain Injury Symptoms In Your Student-Athletes
Most people figured that the quarterback's day was finished, but after a few plays, he was back out on the field. NFL fans immediately began voicing their concerns on social media, regardless of whether they like the Texans or not. The offense fizzled on the next drive, and the next time they were supposed to take the field, medical staffers could be seen restraining Savage on the sideline, preventing him from returning to the game. Why is this so important to our Sarasota community? Sports are meant to be fun, and the athletes take huge risks, especially when there is full-contact involved. Many teens, including those from Florida, have a dream of one day making it to the big leagues to compete. However, brain injuries are possibilities that can smash those goals by causing a variety of different complications that include...
• Mental Impairment
• Permanent Or Temporary Disability
Most athletes accept that there are certain risks involved with playing sports. Each one trains to keep their body in peak shape to handle the events and are even provided with safety equipment that offers them some protection. However, children are just out bonding with friends, and they are not always aware of the implications that one wrong move can have on the rest of their life. Parents, coaches, and anyone else watching the game must be on the lookout for symptoms that include, but are not limited to...
• Dizziness Or An Inability To Balance Properly
• Confusion And Disorientation
• Memory Loss
• Double, Impaired, Or Blurry Vision
• Light And Noise Sensitivity
