The risk of brain injury in soccer

Sep 20, 2018 4:47:48 PM

There has been a lot of talk in recent years about the dangers of football--and the growing concerns surrounding brain injuries from the sport. However, a recent study indicates that the world's most popular sport--soccer--actually has the potential to lead to long-term brain damage as well.

Researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine conducted a study on the impact of heading--a soccer technique in which a player jumps into the air and intercepts a ball--usually traveling at high speed--with their head. Because soccer players are not permitted to use their hands, the head is the primary way for a player to control a ball in mid-air. The study shows that over time, this technique can have neurological consequences.

They are not behind the wheel in New York traffic or wandering the dangerous streets with pedestrian accidents waiting to happen.

However, your child can still end up with serious injuries from a bus if they are not careful or taught how to approach it properly. Before your kid heads to classes, it is important to show them proper bus safety so you have less worries about them when they are not with you.
