This is a sponsored post in partnership with The Motherhood on behalf of UPMC.
The Motherhood and I are thrilled to partner with UPMC – a trusted partner and friend to moms and families when dealing with concussions – to bring awareness to families about their concussion program and treatment approaches.
As a Mama of three (soon to be 4) rambunctious little ones and wife to a hockey-loving husband, it’s so important to me to share information about concussion treatment with other families like ours where concussions may occur and need to be treated properly. Gymnastics, cheerleading, soccer, general childhood craziness; I feel like it’s our obligation as parents to be prepared for head injuries like concussions even if they haven’t happened in our families yet.
Luckily, Treatment can make all the difference in the world! A great resource to keep book marked is the UPMC ReThinkConcussions.com website. On their website, you can find comprehensive information to help you learn about concussions, find treatment, and get yourself or a family member to recovery faster.
First, it’s helpful to know what you are dealing with. What exactly is a concussion? This graphic explains it perfectly.
Second, have some peace of mind that you can recover from a concussion because concussions are treatable. You can learn more from UPMC about concussion treatment.
I encourage you to watch this video, some parent to parent advice about concussions that is worth sharing especially if you have kids!
