Falling from Loosa: Tatum's concussion story

Is it just a headache? Or is it a concussion? Tatum Brown, 12, was preparing for a competitive barrel racing event with her horse, Loosa, when a sudden move by another horse caused her to fall in to a pole at the side of the ring. It happened so quickly that at first, no one, not even Tatum, realized that the accident had caused a head injury. Pediatric neurologist Jennifer Yuen, DO, of Banner Children's, talks about why symptoms of concussion can be overlooked, why the brain needs rest to recover, and the risks of allowing a child to return to activities too soon.
