Preview Clip

A Toronto doctor specializing in concussion research and treatment has founded a 24-hour hotline as a resource for anyone who may have sustained a head injury. Dr. Neilank Jha (NEEL'-ank JAH) says there's a serious need for more education and information on concussions, which occur when the outside of the brain is bruised by impact with the inner skull. For instance, he says people often don't know that a concussion isn't always caused by a blow to the head. (Jha says the hot line is meant to educate people and help them take proper precautions in the days after a potential head injury.)
