Submitted By Paige Phillips on Tuesday, December 6, 2016
Brain injury - the invisible epidemic. According to CDC, brain injury will be the BIGGEST public health problem by the year 2020. A concussion is a form of a brain injury. 

The dangers of concussions - especially when untreated - are becoming more commonly known due to research in recent years. During the last decade, doctors visits for sport/recreation traumatic brain injuries among children and adolescent has increased by 60 per cent. And returning to sport, school or work before you have completely healed from a concussion an have harmful impacts - in some cases - death.
