Concussions have been making headlines in the last few years. We have read about them often in the context of the National Football League, but head injuries have also become a major issue for the youth of Texas and the rest of the country. The more we know about serious brain injuries, the more important it has become to protect children from suffering head trauma that could have lifelong consequences.
Interestingly, a recent study suggested that certain kids may suffer more serious concussions than others, which could change the way parents, coaches and others approach sports safety. The study, conducted by a specialist in pediatric sports medicine, suggested that girls suffer from worse symptoms after a concussion than boys.
