South Africa: Concussion in Football
[SAFA] Concussion is one of the most common head injuries in football. It is therefore critical to give our football family some insight on concussion. Concussion is also a specialised topic so I will try and give a very basic overview for the benefit of everyone regardless of medical background. It is defined as a traumatic brain injury that is caused by a direct or indirect blow to the head thus shaking up the brain forcefully inside the skull. (Source: AllAfrica News: Health and Medicine)
