Concussions are a common head injury, also known as a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI), caused by the shaking of the brain inside the skull. It can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime.
Adam Wedlake, Executive Director of Basketball Manitoba for the last 25 years, has noticed a recent change in the concussion side of basketball and within sport in general.
“Only in the last 10 years have concussions started to become on the radar, and only in the last few years have they been discussed more in sport and amongst athletes,” Adam said.
