Today marks the end of Parenting Peak Performer’s 4th season, and as we wrap up, we’re going to pivot away from talking about the coach’s perspective. Instead, we’re closing our season with another vital topic for parents of athletically-involved kids.
No incredible athletic achievement is worth it if our kids’ health is at stake.
To help me process how parents can keep their kids safe on the court and field, I’ve brought in Dr. Greg Rubin. Dr. Rubin is a board-certified internal medicine physician with added qualifications in sport medicine. He established and staffs a walk-in clinic in Naples Florida. He’s the co-founder of The Sports Med Review, a website focused on providing open-access information to sports medicine physicians.
In this episode, you’re going to hear Dr. Rubin discuss perhaps the most frequent injury in sports medicine: concussions.
Today, We’re Answering Key Questions about Concussions
What is a concussion? And what is “second impact syndrome?”
How can you identify them?
How should a concussion be treated?
What can parents do to prevent them?
What can we do to speed up recovery?
There’s so much we can do to prevent and treat concussions for young athletes, which is why this episode is absolutely essential for any parent with sports-active children.
