Hits to the head are almost unavoidable in contact sports. But with any bump to the head—or even the neck—caution should be the name of the game. That bump could cause a concussion.

Concussions are brain injuries that need to be managed by a health care professional to help avoid potential long-term complications such as chronic headaches, cognitive challenges and emotional difficulties. Getting medical help quickly offers the best chance of avoiding serious consequences.

Hear board-certified sports medicine physician Sherrie Ballantine-Talmadge, DO, describe the signs of concussion and when a hit to the head should mean a trip to the doctor or emergency room. Then she’ll review treatment options and rehabilitation for concussions.
