CINCINNATI - 9 News talks with Ken Rusche from Oxford Physical Therapy Centers about concussions and what parents, coaches and players should know before taking the field.
Rusche tells 9 News that every year football players from the high school level to the professional ranks are treated for concussions.
A concussion occurs when a person's brain is shaken with so much force that it hits the inside of the skull causing a brain injury.
Symptoms to watch for include loss of consciousness or drowsiness, confusion, headache, nausea or vomiting, blurred vision, and a loss of memory of the events surrounding the injury.
