Anyone who knows me, knows how important volleyball is in my life and how passionate I am about it. Stanford Volleyball is my team – I follow them like others do for professional sports and it breaks my heart to read this story: https://volleyballmag.com/hodson-retires/
And it hurts me more from a physical therapy perspective that not more was done to mitigate the situation. Unfortunately there just isn’t enough public knowledge about concussions right now.
Concussions are serious, and while it has gotten a lot of attention from the media in high impact sports such as NHL Hockey and NFL Football, it can happen in any sport. I worked with a professional women’s hockey team (Boston Blades) for the 2016-2017 season and have taken the time to write a topic series on concussions: https://notyouraveragephysio.com/…/concussion-series-part-…/
Concussions are not to be messed with.
