Concussion

Concussion

Concussion is one of many injuries that a sportsperson can pick up, however, unlike a cut or a broken bone, the damage is not visible and people do not treat it with the care and respect it deserves. Whether you are a player, coach, physio / trainer, parent, friend, spectator or official it is really important that you are aware of this injury. There are some very good guides that have been published and which are being used by many sports – sportscotland issued revised guidance in March 2018 – please make sure that you are up-to-date and read this information.

Although officials are not expected to be doctors nor to diagnose concussion everyone should have a read of the information so that they are concussion-aware.
