Concussion is in the news yet again

Published: April 27, 2022

On the weekend, Patrick McCartin from the Sydney Swans sustained yet another head knock resulting in concussion. The former number 1 draft pick has already retired from football due to the effects of concussion - and it was sad to see him in the rooms after failing the test.

However, concussion is a form of brain injury and is not to be taken lightly. We don't just see it in football, but in a range of sports and everyday life. It is as serious as it comes and can change the course of one's life. The news of Pat McCartin is again a reminder to keep on the look out for concussion following a head knock, and it is important to know the signs and symptoms, what to do, who to see and how to manage it to ensure the best and most complete recovery.
