The Effectiveness of Soccer Headgear in Reducing Sports-Related Concussions

Does wearing headgear actually protect you from sustaining a concussion? Furthermore, does it limit the severity of a concussion? Check out this study that was in the British Journal of Sports Medicine in 2018. Over 2700 high school soccer participants were included in this randomized controlled trial investigating the effectiveness of wearing a headgear while playing soccer in reducing the number of sports related concussions. The results indicate that the headgear did not reduce the incidence or the severity of sports related concussion in high school soccer players.
