Experts Recommend Baseline Concussion Tests for Student Athletes
Concussions among young people are seen as a silent epidemic. As student athletes begin the next season of activities, experts say parents should get their children tested for brain injury before they even step on the field. Health reporter Erin Billups has the story.
16-year-old Scott West got a concussion playing football his freshman year in High School.
"I went to go make a tackle and I had a head to head contact with the kid and I just got up my head was ringing, everybody said I was wobbly but I don't remember that much," West said.
His mother then took him to the emergency room, where he was diagnosed with a concussion. . .
