Preventing concussions is as important as treating them.

How can athletes prevent concussions? Neurologist, pediatricians, therapists and neuropsychologists share different treatment methods however in terms of prevention we have our work cut out.

The last thing you want to hear while at work is a call from the coach or school nurse to tell you your son or daughter is in the emergency room with a head injury.

Is there anything you can do to prevent that call? If you get the call, wouldn’t you be happier if you knew that the injury was due to chance rather than a reason you or the school could have prevented? As a parent, let me answer that for you. YES. Accidents do happen but there are a few things that we can all do to prevent them or what to do when they happen.
