Spring has finally sprung and everyone wants to be outside to enjoy the beautiful weather!
People are everywhere, jogging, walking, dogs running around, and kids playing on skateboards, scooters and bikes.
According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
Children and teens are more likely to get a TBI ( Traumatic Brain Injury), including concussion, and take longer to recover than adults. TBI symptoms may appear mild, but the injury can lead to significant life-long impairment affecting an individual’s memory, behavior, learning, and/or emotions. Appropriate diagnosis, management, and education are critical for helping young athletes with a TBI recover quickly and fully.
Before you allow your children to hop on their bicycles, here’s a link to a quick safety overview & activity that you can do with them.
Have a safe & fun summer!
