Sports season is among us and as the kids go back to playing football and soccer we see an increase in the number of student athletes who have suffered a concussion. As a parent, you’re not sure what to do and this can be a very scary time. Our goals is to educate you on the correct protocol and what to expect if your child does suffer an injury on or off the field.

Gina Otterbein and Keith Slenk stopped by the WZZM studios to talk with Catherine Behrendt of My West Michigan (formerly Take Five and Company). We had a great interview and were really excited to be meeting Catherine, Lauren Stanton, and Jennifer Pascua for the first time!

We covered what signs parents should look out for when their child suffers a hit to the head, as well as how the aftermath of the concussion should be handled. You can watch our segment in its entirety below.

If you have any questions on concussions or sports injuries, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
