Concussions in Sports-related Injuries

Concussions are traumatic brain injuries that jar or shake the brain inside the skull. No matter how minor an injury may seem, concussions are always serious.

David Webner, M.D., co-director of the Crozer-Keystone Sports Medicine Fellowship Program, speaks with Ukee Washington on CBS Talk Philly about concussion symptoms and treatments.

If you have sustained an injury and are unsure about your condition, contact a specialist or call 9-1-1 to be evaluated. While most sports concussions can be managed in an outpatient setting, athletes experiencing a worsening of the symptoms should receive emergency medical care.
