Another post from a while back – still true
RIP Sarah Burke (September 3, 1982 – January 19, 2012)
The Concussion Blog had a good post the other day — Action Sports an Issue Too — with a couple of videos that have really haunted me since I watched them.
I’ll show them again here:
There’s some mention at The Concussion Blog about high impact falls and the fencing response (which everyone who plays sports and is concerned about concussion should be aware of), which is good food for thought.
And it really did get me thinking. Because looking at Mr. Huston taking those falls, then lying there for a while and shaking himself off and jumping up to have another “go” at it is exactly the kind of behavior that gets so many of us into trouble.
I’m not sure if it’s the sudden release of glucose into the brain cells, or the whole rushing extended metabolic cascade…
