Indiana Professor Studies Sub-Concussive Head Impact in Bloomington High School Football Players

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Football has always been that one sport that has a bad reputation for concussions, hard hits and yes those horror stories of CTE.

If you’re a concerned parent contemplating on letting your child enroll in such a sport, or if you’re an athlete who loves the game but has had one too many hits, Indiana University associate professor Kei Kawata has the study for you, and it’s based in Bloomington, Ind.

Kei Kawata works with his team on the football field.

The theme is what’s the safe range for head impacts, and what’s the unsafe range for head impacts in football, and can repetitive sub-concussive head impacts cause detectable changes in the brain?
