A concussion is considered one of the most complex injuries in the sport for the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment. Athletic trainers must understand that concussion causes ultrastructural changes in the brain and that these changes are not large enough to be visible on neuroimaging such as an MRI or CT scan (Khurana, Kaye, 2012). Athletes who sustain a concussion are three to six times more likely to sustain a second concussion. As an athletic trainer, physician, or other medical professional, understanding this statistics and previous history of concussions is very important information to decrease the likelihood of concussions (Khurana, Kaye,
This article continues to talk about how the people who are watching know exactly what is going on unlike before advanced medical knowledge, when we didn’t know a lot about concussions and other injuries. Those in the stands at football games know that when each play begins, someone is bound to get hit, and that each hit causes at least a little damage. Football isn’t intended to hurt people, but to get the ball to the end of the field and during this process, people can get hit and hurt. The problem with some sports like boxing, the whole intent is “...to knock his opponent down, stunning him so severely that he can not regain his feet before the referee counts to ten”(Grabianowski).

The latter phenomenon is referred to as malocclusion as a result of trauma and this sensation is felt easily, because the teeth sense even the slightest change in alignment, which generates the sensation of something being wrong. Other signs and symptoms of a mandibular fracture include, obvious deformity, bruising, swelling, numbness due to inferior alveolar nerve compression, and trismus, which is an inability to fully open the mouth. Management While surgery may not necessarily be immediately required in these patients, it is crucial to ensure that the airway is secured, because of the bone’s proximity to the upper respiratory tract and the potential for obstructive complications in an emergency setting. Diagnosis is then followed with the help of imaging. A panoramic radiograph is very useful in many cases, because it allows for visualization of the entire mandible.
Concussions cause a degenerative brain disease called Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is what caused the suffering and eventual suicide of one of the greatest linebackers of all time, Junior Seau. Brain Injuries that occur during youth football are extremely serious because the child’s brain is still growing and developing in so many ways.

Some of the most common injuries seen in youth football include traumatic knee injuries such as ACL/PCL tears and damage to the cartilage of the knee, shoulder injuries such as damage to the cartilage surrounding the socket of the shoulder, concussions, back pain from overuse, and heat stroke, and complications related to dehydration. Many youth football players also must deal with broken bones and torn ligaments. With the amount of injuries these young athletes are at risk of getting, it’s amazing that parents even let their children play football at all. Although uncommon, there have been football injuries resulting in paralysis and other injuries that affect the quality of life for the individual in question. With the amount of injuries young football players are exposed to, it would be reasonable to consider banning the sport in people under the age of 18

However, it is also important to note that a concussion can also take place outside of sports, meaning it can happen to anybody. For instance, there have been incidents where a person tripped while running, fell, and the impact of their head’s contact with the ground caused a concussion. Or, in a car accident many front-seat passengers, or even the driver, have slammed their heads against the dashboard/steering wheel, also possibly resulting in a concussion. Concussions when treated can be healed in a timely manner. Unfortunately, throughout history, there has been a tendency for people to overlook a concussion as a serious injury, therefore, making it more problematic than it already is.
