August is a month for emphasizing concussion prevention at school

The beginning of August signifies that summer vacation will soon be over for Arizona children as a new school year approaches. Many students will not only be starting new classes, but will also be heading out on to practice fields and courts to take part in a variety of athletic activities.

August is also Neurosurgery Outreach Month. The American Association of Neurological Surgeons wants to call attention to the serious dangers posed by concussions, as well as other head and neck injuries. The AANS wants coaches, players, parents and administrators to take the precautions necessary to help athletic participants avoid injuries.

Every year, contact sports in high schools are accountable for over 62,000 concussions. Women’s activities are a concern of the AANS. They point out that the American Journal of Sports Medicine cites women’s soccer as the sport having the second highest number of reported concussions among young athletes. Football is the sport responsible for the most reported concussions.

In addition, competitive cheerleading has, over the last two decades, become increasingly more acrobatic. As a result, there have been requirements and rule changes created that must be enforced.

We all hope that this year is filled with safe and fun times for the students returning to class. In order for this to happen, those who oversee the well-being of young sports participants must act responsibly. Whenever possible, preventative measures must be employed to lessen the likelihood of concussions and other injuries.

A brain injury incurred while participating in school activities can leave a young person with long lasting or even permanent physical damage. If your child suffers such an injury, an investigation should be conducted to clarify all liability and compensation issues. An Arizona accident attorney may be able to provide you with the legal assistance you need when pursuing fair compensation.
