You may have heard about the recent study where CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) was found in 99% of the deceased NFL players who donated their bodies to research. CTE is a neurodegenerative brain disease that causes memory loss, confusion, depression, anxiety, suicidal behavior, and a multitude of other clinical symptoms. Contact sports are some of the most common causes of brain injury. According to the Center of Disease Control, over 300,000 sports related traumatic brain injuries, also known as concussions, occur each year in the United States. Mild head injuries often go undetected. This is especially risky for teens and children because if not treated, even a mild brain injury can cause permanent damage to an undeveloped brain. No matter how mild the injury is, it can still be serious for a younger athlete and requires treatment. As a parent, it is important to be aware of the causes and symptoms of brain trauma in children and teenagers. Watch the video below to find out the most common causes and symptoms of brain injury.
