Concussion Expert: Proper Treatment The Key To Recovery For Student-Athletes


An expert on concussions says parents don't need to be scared about their sons playing football... despite growing evidence about the dangers of concussions. 

 

Appearing live on the 970 WMAY News Feed, Doctor Wendell Becton says as long as an athlete gets proper treatment after a concussion, including several days of rest, there should be no lingering effects. 

 

But he notes that some recent advancements... such as the development of new, harder helmets... may ironically increase the dangers, because players may lead with their heads, thinking they are protected from injury.
