Concussions http://wkms.org en Concussions and Young Athletes, a Growing Concern http://wkms.org/post/concussions-and-young-athletes-growing-concern <p>Over the past few years, we’ve seen a number of reports from the National Football League, the National Hockey League, and other professional sports organizations about the tragic consequences that can come from a lifetime of hard hits and the effects of the concussions that come with them. There’s been speculation that several high-profile athlete suicides were related to what health professionals call Post- Concussion syndrome. Now, there’s growing concern that the hits young athletes suffer in high-school and college sports could have the same effects later in life.
