Head injuries can be extremely traumatic for a person, however the buzz phase at the minute is all about checking for concussion and concussion protocols and rightly so as the effects of concussion can be huge. However can wearing a helmet when partaking a specific sport stop you getting concussion? In 2005 a study was undertaken to see the effects of trauma to the head and neck, they found that wearing a helmet did significantly reduce the risk of serious head of facial injuries however did not seem to help when it comes to concussion. Hopefully now with all the research and funding going into concussion we will be able to find a way to prevent the disorder.
