One Concussion: More than Enough for Most
If you look at the history of many sports, including college football, you will notice a long history of injuries—some individuals suffering multiple injuries throughout their entire career. Unfortunately, this is something that comes with any kind of situation where high impact is present.
But for something as serious as a head injury and concussions, how much is too much? With concussions, one is enough to do significant damage to the athlete, often causing many individuals to endure the long-term effects long after they make the decision to stop playing.
The Problems with Multiple Concussions
Suffering from one concussion can cause short-term memory loss, issues regarding focus, and headaches. Multiple concussions can result in long-term cognitive issues, the inability to comprehend some basic tasks, and behavioral issues.
One of the biggest issues with this is the potential for an individual to develop a brain disease such as chronic traumatic encephalopathy. This has been linked to multiple cases of suicide in former athletes—an ongoing problem.
Why One Concussion Is All It Takes to Rethink Your Path
If you’re an athlete in high impact sports, it’s important to recognize how serious even one concussion can be to your mental and physical health. These serious injuries may be impactful over your everyday life, and it can be complicated to overcome some of the problems involved.
