Soccer is one of the leading causes of concussions and is very dangerous for those athletes who love using his or her head (like myself). Between heading the ball and collisions with other players, head injuries can occur and can lead to concussions or other brain injuries. One way I try to prevent concussions from happening is by using headgear. Ali Krieger, one of the USA women’s national team members, uses headgear as well as many other professional soccer players in order to protect their brains. The soft padding absorbs much of the impact that can happen by heading a ball or another player and can help keep you safe during the game.
