Concussions

 

A concussion is a brain injury.  Concussions can be caused by a direct or indirect hit to the head or body that causes a shaking or jarring of the brain inside the skull. Concussions are called the invisible injury because you can’t see the injury on the outside and tests like MRI or CT scans usually appear normal. 1

Parachute Canada has released the first ever Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport. This comprehensive guideline covers pre-season education and the recognition, medical diagnosis, and management of athletes who sustain a suspected concussion during a sport activity. It is aimed at ensuring sport participants with suspected concussions receive timely appropriate care, and proper management to allow them to return safely to their sport to continue training, competing, and enjoying a full, active life. The guideline is available at the following link:
