Everyday, we’re learning more and more about concussions. Something coming to light is that teenagers can have more severe concussions compared to adults. With their brains still developing, side effects from a big hit to the head can be detrimental. Teens also tend to put themselves at risk of getting multiple concussions in a short period of time. This is because the initial symptoms may not be very noticeable, and athletes want to push through and keep on playing. If an adolescent takes a hit to the head, they need to be checked out by a doctor (Cabun Regional Health).
