The long-term damage inflicted by concussions
In sports, there are nearly 300,000 concussions each year according to government statistics. These brain injuries not only cause short-term memory loss and headaches, they also could lead to long-term damage.
This long-term damage has been frequently commented on in the media because of the recent studies released on NFL players' concussions. The studies have shown that NFL players who suffer concussions in their career have a higher likelihood of long-term brain injuries like dementia.
