The risk of sustaining a serious brain injury in contact sports is well documents. Several organizations including the NFL and the NCAA have taken steps to prevent brain injury in recent years, though these steps have only come on the heels of lawsuits from former players. But it is not traditional contact sports alone that pose risk for brain injury. In fact, a recent report indicates sports including soccer may also place players at increased risk.
While there is an accepted risk by professional athletes, regardless of the sport, steps can be taken to reduce injury from head trauma. School aged children as well should be provided with equipment and training that reduces risks and helps ensure a safe and fun time during athletic involvement.
