Medical Procedures After a Head Injury

Finally, when a concussion does happen, the medical procedures that have been put in place for dealing with them must be followed.  But in addition to that, family members and those close to a youngster who has suffered a concussion must be vigilant and watch for changes in the individual.  It is now well-accepted that concussion-like symptoms can continue for weeks, months or years following a traumatic brain injury.  It is our role as parents to watch how a youngster is healing and to make 100% sure that the head injury has completely resolved before allowing the player back on the field.  Err on the side of caution.
