Concussions Need More Study

Montanan kids are an active bunch…they’re involved in all types of athletic activities and from a very young age. That’s why some new research should be very interesting to parents, coaches, and anyone involved with youth athletics.

A major report says far too little is known about the risks of concussions in youth sports, especially for athletes who suit up before high school. And it’s not just a question for football. The Institute of Medicine found no one knows how often the youngest athletes suffer concussions or which sports have the highest rates. Nor is it clear if better headgear ever will help. The Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council are calling for a national system to track sports-related concussions and start answering those questions.

We need to keep our kids active and make sure they’re well protected.
