On Monday evening WBAL-TV ran an excellent story on whether helmets are needed in girl’s lacrosse. With the growing number of concussions in the sport, the pros and cons of wearing a helmet is a major topic of debate among experts.
Kevin Crutchfield, M.D., the director of the Comprehensive Sports Concussion Program at LifeBridge Health, was featured in this story. As one of the country’s foremost concussion experts, he is a constant advocate for awareness and education about this condition.
As we all know, concussions are a hot topic, especially among parents who have kids playing sports. The interesting thing is that, whether we play sports or not, a concussion can happen to any of us. With all of this talk about concussions, you might have questions or concerns for yourself, your child or somebody you know.
LifeBridge Health will be offering a perfect opportunity to learn more about concussions on May 30 at 6:30 p.m. Dr. Crutchfield will be hosting a free concussion education webinar. He’ll talk about how concussions occur, how they affect a person’s physical and mental well being, and how they can be treated. The best part is that you don’t even need to leave home to attend! (A computer and Internet connection are required.)
