Three Things to Look for During Men’s Health Month

Prevention is the best medicine, but it’s hard to try and stop something without awareness of the issue. June is Men’s Health Month, which is dedicated to teaching males of all ages about health concerns that can affect them throughout their lives.

While you may already know about health concerns like cardiovascular disease, you may not realize just how important it is to prevent these issues.

Concussions Explained

Concussions usually occur by a bump, jolt or blow to the head. Occasionally this may cause a loss of consciousness. They range from mild to severe and can affect a person's memory, judgment, reflexes, speech, balance and coordination. 

Concussions are common in contact sports like football, hockey, and soccer, but they can also occur on the playground. We must be cautious because this is a brain injury and can have serious consequences if not recognized and allowed to heal.
