Concussions and Head Injuries in Youth Hockey
Without a doubt, concussions are a growing concern in hockey and youth sports in general. A wealth of information has emerged regarding this subject, though it’s hard to tell what’s true and what’s not so true. Do concussions really occur more frequently after the first? Do some sports have higher instances of concussions than others? Does protective equipment actually increase an athlete’s risk?
In this podcast, Dr. Elizabeth Pieroth offers her expert advice on how parents, coaches, and athletes can work together to reduce concussions rates. Pieroth serves as the neurological consultant for the Chicago Bears, Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Fire and Chicago White Sox. It’s a must-listen for anyone involved in youth sports.
