Heads Up! Archived
A concussion or mild traumatic brain injury is one of the most commonly reported injuries in organized youth sports. It can exist without losing consciousness and symptoms can last minutes, days, months, or longer. So, it is important to recognize them and get treatment right away. CDC has developed Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports — a free tool kit to help youth sports coaches, parents, and athletes recognize and respond to concussion symptoms. Visit www.cdc.gov/concussioninyouthsports. Created: 7/27/2007 by MMWR. Date Released: 7/27/2007. Series Name: A Minute of Health with CDC.
