With all the talk going on about head injuries sustained by professional athletes, you might be wondering if your little athlete is at risk. Providence Saint Vincent Head of Child Neurology, Doctor Parvayz Pohowalla says the answer is yes, especially in sports with heavy contact, like football or hockey. Remember to look for the signs of concussion: blurred or double-vision, headache, and disorientation.  The doctor says parents should look for symptoms at least a week after an incident. The CDC lists other signs and symptoms on their website.
