Study Reveals Increase In Soccer-Related Injuries, Concussions

Lindsey Tanner writing for the AP reported research has found an increase in soccer-related injuries among kids in the US being sent to emergency departments. The trend is “driven in part by young players with concussions seeking urgent medical care.” The findings were based on 25 years of data and found that the overall rate of injuries has “more than doubled to 220 per 10,000 players in 2013, from 106 per 10,000 players in 1990.”

Comment: One of my sons when he was playing soccer had 2 concussions.  This is a serious issue.
