Interactive graphic: Concussions in sports
By Playbook Visuals
Concussions are an important topic in the NFL, but also in all sorts of sports at the high school level.
The reason for the latter: Nearly 200,000 American high school athletes suffered concussions in 2010, up almost 50 percent from four years earlier.
And so, concussion education -- especially in terms of treatment and prevention -- is growing. Take this interactive graphic, made for AmeriHealth by InfographicWorld.com, which offers an in-depth course for athletes and their families on what these injuries are and how the damage can be minimized.
