While many parents are excited to see their children play sports, concussions are a real risk. Duy Tran, DO, pediatric emergency medicine physician with Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital, says it’s important for parents to know the signs and symptoms of concussion in their child.
“Kids are typically at a higher risk of concussion for a couple reasons. Kids tend to be a lot more active, they also tend to have more immature brains and can have a hard time explaining how they feel, which can delay identifying when a concussion actually happens,” says Tran.
