Andrew Gordon M.D. was interviewed on the Fox 32 9 o’clock news this week. Dr. Gordon discussed with Fox 32 reporters the importance of educating the public regarding concussion.
When questioned about kids and tackle football, Dr. Gordon stresses that this decision is for parents to make. Getting educated is key. Anyone with a concussion or sub-concussive symptoms should be evaluated by a physician, preferably a neurologist, before return to play. When in doubt sit out!
