Concussion Management for Young Athletes

first_imgHead injury, including concussion, continues to be a concern in youth sports and it especially present in lacrosse – they are among the five most frequent injuries for both boys and girls high school lacrosse.It is important to understand that even when the highest standards are kept, no current helmet can eliminate concussions. All current helmet standards are designed to reduce the risk of severe brain injury and skull fracture, not to prevent concussion. There are substantial efforts towards developing standards and helmets that can reduce the risk of concussions, but this remains a challenge.It is important to be aware of signs and symptoms of concussion and be prepared to take care of the injured. Tribe Lacrosse has experienced coaches who closely monitor athletes and if any of them exhibits signs, symptoms or behaviors suggestive of a concussion he shall be removed from practice or competition. Athletes are advised not to return to play until evaluated by a healthcare professional with experience in the evaluation and management of concussions. Athletes diagnosed with or suspected of a concussion should not return to activity for the remainder of that day.If you want to learn more about lacrosse and how to join the team you can visit http://tribelacrosse.org/ or call (530) 988TLAX.
