Doctors remind parents of concussion symptoms as fall sports begin
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - As kids return to school and fall sports, doctors are reminding parents about concussion symptoms.
The symptoms do not always show up on the same day in which the injury happens.
Last year, Austin Billings was playing football in his backyard when he fell onto the grass.
"I had no idea what it was," Billings said. "I was scared. I didn't know if they had to do surgery on me or something."
Billings didn't experience any dizziness until the next day. Doctors say that is a common occurrence with mild concussions.
To treat him, doctors used physical therapy - the same drills and movements that made him sick.
