Imagine being the MVP of an all star sports team, then suffering a concussion from a very competitive game or tournament. No matter what sport an athlete plays or how skilled they are at it, there is always going to be a possibility of injury. Concussions are an injury with serious side effects and can permanently end any star's career. Today, many young athletes suffer from sport related concussions. An estimated 3.8 million recreational and athletic concussions occur annually in the United States, according to statistics in 2012 (Concussion and Sports). Concussions are high on the rise and make athletes very vulnerable and prone to them. Among male athletes, sports resulting in the most concussions include football, ice hockey, lacrosse, wrestling, and soccer. For female athletes, soccer, lacrosse, and basketball were recorded for the sports that resulted in the most concussions. Youth athletes who have suffered one concussion, onset greater chances of experiencing more.
High school athletes that partake in a sport that requires intense physical activity are the most vulnerable to concussion and need more time to recover. According to the Head Case “High school football accounts for 47 percent of all reported sports concussions, with 33 percent of concussions occurring during practice.” This alarming percentage shows the more attention is required to keeping young athletes safe during game and in practice. By understanding the role of concussions can play in high school sports, the coaches and the athletes can take the right the steps to help prevent these problems from happening.
Many varying kinds of head injuries can cause epileptic seizures, or other traumatic diseases, disorders and maybe even paralyzation. The most usual form of head injury is a concussion. A concussion can cause many forms of disorders of the brain that are potentially fatal. The most common way to receive a concussion is from contact sports, such as football, basketball, hockey, and even baseball. But the most prevalent sport that causes the highest amount of concussions is in football. The National Football League, or the NFL, is a league that consists of 32 teams from North America, averaging 53 people per team.

Over the previous decades, concussions have increasingly received attention in the world of sports. A concussion is a serious head injury that can happen to any player, and in just about any sport. Indeed, it has been happening to a countless number of athletes for centuries. 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. In the times to come, there will certainly continue to be dangers for athletes in just about any sport, as they are unavoidable. However, focusing strictly
Many of the famous sports today are played with great enjoyment, however, contact injuries can always occur at any time. Many of these injuries are concussions. Couple of years back studies showed concussions were not a major subject to be dealt with, but until later this idea was proven wrong. A simple Concussion can change many things in your life even the way you act. Many have died due to multiple major concussions even famous athletes. Young high school athletes are starting their sports journey and face these same injuries and when it happens it should be dealt with very seriously.
Kids are literally just dying to play football. This project is intended to dissect the reason why children playing football can sustain a traumatic brain injury. Youth football can cause traumatic brain injuries. This exposes why football is damaging to kids.
Middle School Sports get more competitive every year as the kids get more specialized in their sport that they are doing. They are willing to do anything to get a win for their school. Including sacrificing their body to get a charge in basketball, or dive to get the ball in volleyball, and probably the most dangerous tackling and butting heads in football. All these sports can cause serious damage to their brains and hurt their grades in the process.
Tough luck on the field and courts for players in extreme contact sports happen almost frequently. From broken arms, fingers, shoulders, and etc; no other sports injury is more detrimental to athletes then receiving a concussion. The strength of players to take hard hits and get back to the game is always amazing however it is not safe for the players. Although safety measures and protective wear have improved, players need additional time to bounce back from concussions. Athletes who suffer from concussions have long lasting problems that impair both cognitive and physical functioning. So how will extra periods of sports related injury breaks be beneficial?
Nearly 21% of all traumatic brain injuries to American children are due to sports and recreational activities. In the US, the most common injuries in youth, collegiate and professional sports is ankle injuries and pulled muscles. However, the most detrimental injury is stress to the brain, also known as a concussion.

Many parents, including mine, are becoming weary of their children playing soccer. This sport, just like football, is gaining this reputation because of the risk of concussions from heading the ball. Also, like football, there is equipment being developed to make this sport safer. Instead of helmets, it is headbands to reduce the impact from the ball. In Delaney’s study on the effect of headgear in soccer, he showed showed how this protective equipment in soccer does a lot to help prevent against concussions (Delaney) There were a couple different results that he found in this study showing this. One of these results was that wearing headgear decreased the risk of suffering a concussion on a head to head impact 32.6 percent (Delaney). This
From the first football game ever played till now, the development of safety equipment has sky rocketed tremendously from the first leather helmet to the now hard plastic shelling with thick padding on the inside. The classic idea of a helmet that have been used since 1893, is to wrap the players head in a tough external shell. Over time the evolution of helmets has had significant improvements in reduced lacerations and skull fractures, however, the ability to prevent brain injury has been limited. Helmets can help reduce the size of impact forces, but they cannot counter the brain from moving within the skull. An invention called the Q-Collar, incorporates a different approach to attempt to do that. Slightly clamping down on a player’s jugular vein, causes the brain to swell and fit more snug inside the brain. Already, tests have been done and have shown major improvements however, the Q-Collar has not yet received Food and Drug Administration approval yet, and more research is still needed. Not only could this have major benefits in athletics, this could also benefit automobile accidents and military operations. More than just developing safe equipment is being done. The simple modification of changing what the sport of football is played on to help reduce concussions are

Some sports are just rough and dangerous so they need good safety gear. Some of the most dangerous sports don’t have enough safety gear or they might not be good enough. A lot of people get injured or worst playing these sports because they are very dangerous which is why they need more safety gear. I think that if they improve the safety gear for these sports there would be a lot less injuries. In certain sports people get concussions and brain damage.
