TURNING PEOPLE INTO COUCH POTATOES IS NOT A CURE FOR SPORTS CONCUSSION

Recognising and managing concussion properly is seriously important. After all, you only get one brain.  But if we do this, it is important we continue to advise people to take part in sport and physical activity- for the massive physical and mental health benefits that are available.

Here is a link below to a press release Catherine Calderwood Chief Medical Officer for Scotland, Willie Stewart who is a world leader in sports concussion and myself contributed to sharing these clear messages, based on an editorial in (the excellent British Journal of Sports Medicine).  If you agree, please feel free to share widely so we can work together to encourage safe sport for our children and adults.
