Concussions seem to happen recently in the United States. Concussions are very dangerous and should be taken seriously. Most people think that they won’t get a concussion just because they aren’t athletic. There is also no system for data of concussions. That is what makes concussions so dangerous, because you will never know how many people have gotten concussions in the United States.
The ultimate goal of a boxing match is a knock out. The knockout punch brings satisfaction to the winner of the boxing math and the crowd. This one punch can make a fight exciting. However, if there is not a knockout punch, the fight is often times dull. After a knockout punch, one man loses consciousness while the other man dances around the ring raising his hands in victory and is swarmed by his coaches and the press. Oates continues to argue that boxing is the cruelest sport by comparing a boxing match to a tragedy. If a fight has no knock out by the end, it seems like the fight is missing something. The knockout punch is a cruel but key aspect to boxing which makes people love
Boxers sometimes face the challenge of defeating their opponent for many reasons. Those reasons could be to prove they can win, to earn money and to not disappoint or lead down fans and beaters. Many boxers choose boxing because they are good at it and it’s a way of earning money, just like Benny Paret. Boxing is a dangerous sport since every boxer become badly hurt and ill at the end of every match. Most boxers suffer from brain damages as a result of many hits in the head. Cousins explains that Benny Paret was killed because of a massive hemorrhage in the brain, caused by an impact directed against the head (par. 7) Cousins also wrote “Not every blow to the head will kill a man but there is always the risk of concussion and damage to the brain” (par. 7). Fighters that survive repeated concussions still go and fight, but the problem here is that the damage in the brain may be permanent. Sometimes boxers should consider their health problems before fighting again.
“For example, collision sports such as football and ice hockey characteristically have more acute traumatic injuries than sports such as swimming and track. Boxing has more head-related trauma because of the focus of the sport. Within each sport, a general injury pattern and specific types of injury are unique to the sport. One type of injury that can occur in any sport or physical activity is concussion”. (Cerebral Concussion: Causes, Effects, and Risks in Sports).
MMA is a serious sport that leaves many athletes in critical condition whether it is after a match or later in retirement. They have a great risk of head trauma. The main goal of MMA is to physically harm the opponent. In the end of the match on will be leaving with head injuries. Today researchers are taking serious attention to head trauma. About 900 people in boxing have died because of trauma to the head (“Boxing Regulation”). This does not include people that have died after they have retired, and their cause of death was from early years of boxing.
According to the Centre for Disease Control New Jersey, roughly 1.4 million people sustain traumatic brain injuries in the United States from the result of contact sports. Out of those 1.4 million people, 50,000 die due to the severity of their brain injury.“But brain injury is preventable. Surely given what we already know about the brain and getting at least a glimpse of it’s awesome complexities, we should not be making sport or deliberately trying to do it damage,” says Joan Beck in her article, “Stop Pretending Boxing is a Sport”. Violence in sports should be removed because, it is treacherous to the human body and leads to severe injuries; especially head injuries.
Wrestling is a sport about hard work and dedication. Some people say that wrestling is the hardest sport in high school because the sport is mostly a mind game. If you let someone get in your head or the workouts get in your head, then you have already lost the fight. Just like in any situation in your life, if you let the situation get the better of you, you lost.
This data shows that over half of the concussions sustained in high school occur in football out of nine major sports. This chart shows how violent of a sport football is. Which is why concussions are so common in football.
The CDC has estimated that up to 3.8 million concussions occur in sports and recreational activities each year, but some experts wonder if those numbers underestimate total brain injuries, as some individuals may not seek treatment for mild or moderate
Picture a college size stadium filled with parents, students, and fans. Overflowing with crisp fall air and trembling with excitement for kickoff of a high school football game. The whistle blows, ball is kicked , the sound of pads and helmets colliding. But then the second whistle blows and you see your teammate lying on the ground unconscious. Now nothing but that white jersey laying motionless on the turf matters to you. Trainers then EMT’s rush over. They put a brace on his neck, his body on a stretcher and rush him off the field. These are the types of hits apparent in high school age football. Now double the size and speed of that impact. Concussions happen in almost every sport but not in the same severity
A lot of people suffer concussions and don't even know it. It is a crazy thing and happens most often in football. But can happen in any sport. About 67,000 concussions happen yearly in high school football and they are not hitting as hard as a NFL player so the difference is probably very different. It says optimality 4 concussions happen yearly on a high school football team.
I think that we should send anyone that has just gotten hit in the head in their sport should be sent to go get a cat scan because who know how much damage has been done to the brain with that hit they just suffered and if they get the cat scan might be able to help them before it gets any worse. If kids would learn the right Technic in any sport, then I think we could cut down on the amount of concussions we see every year from football
