Football players have more safety equipment than ever before but the truth is that there is only so much that can be done to prevent head injuries. In some cases, players are severely injured by a single brain injury while in other instances, they may suffer many “minor” injuries, which can lead to serious, long-term consequences.

Concussions Can Have Consequences for Years to Come
Top brain doctors have noted that suffering just a single concussion means that an athlete will be as much as four times as likely to get a second concussion. If that second concussion occurs before full recovery from the first concussion, then Second Impact Syndrome (SIS) can occur. This results in serious swelling in the brain and loss of blood flow to the brain. Even if a player is entirely healed between the first and second concussions, long-term brain damage can still occur.
Some of the most common symptoms of people suffering from SIS include:
- Memory problems
- Leaning problems
- Difficulty thinking or processing information
- Behavioral issues
- Changes in the hippocampus that may be linked to increased risk of future brain disease
A person may have one or more symptoms if they are suffering from SIS.
