The impact of a concussion

Athletes are oftentimes at risk for concussions, a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a blow to the head or body. Although most athletes have good outcomes, some concussions can be more serious, while repeated concussions can lead to long-term health problems. Dr. Shannon Woods explains the impact of a concussion, and middle-school athlete Alec shares his story of an injury on the football field.
