When it comes to recreational activity, safety is always the goal regardless if you are a professional athlete or a child getting into sports for the first time at a young age. The topic of sports safety is usually dominated by they word “concussion” but how many people really know what a concussion is, how it is diagnosed and most importantly how concussions can be prevented? To get the medical professional's point of view, we ask our panel of Dr. Felicia Gliksman, Director of the Concussion Center at Hackensack University Medical Center and Dr. Christine Greiss, Director of The Concussion Program at JFK-Johnson Rehabilitation Institute to discuss the facts on concussions and offer advice on the best ways we can all enjoy sports and recreation safely.
