However, concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. More

from Reuters Health via Chicago Tribune    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Fewer high school field hockey players get head and face injuries when they're required to don protective eyewear, according to a new comparison of states with and without those policies in effect.
