WAHA Concussion Policy

When we are at the rink and our skaters take a fall or a check, we have coaches to keep an eye on them, but at home it is a different story.  Concussions are a serious issue and need to be dealt with the upmost caution.  Here is a link to the WAHA concussion policy. 

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that interferes with normal function of the brain. All concussions are brain injuries.

A concussion can be caused by blow to the head or even a blow to the body alone. The force moves or twists the brain in the skull. It is important to know that loss of consciousness is not required to have a concussion. In fact, less than 10% of athletes lose consciousness. A concussion is a very complex physiologic event that causes a problem with brain function not brain structure. Therefore, CT/CAT scan and MRI are usually normal in athletes with concussion. Imaging studies may be needed to rule out brain bleeds, but are not indicated in all head concussions.

Even what appears to be a mild blow to the head or body can cause the brain to suddenly shift or move. This motion can injure and damage brain cells. Research has shown that this damage may take up to 2 weeks to heal, but it can take longer.

Concussion affects people in four areas of function:

  1. Physical – This describes how they feel: headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, tired and loss of consciousness (which is uncommon in concussion).
  2. Thinking – Poor memory and concentration, responds to questions more slowly and asks repetitive questions. Concussion can cause an altered state of awareness and thinking.
  3. Emotions - A concussion can make a person more irritable or sad and cause mood swings.
  4. Sleep – Concussions frequently cause trouble falling asleep and may wake athletes up overnight, which can make them more fatigued throughout the day.
