Study: Soccer players can do serious damage heading the ball

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt.

A new study finds soccer players who hit the ball with their heads can do some serious damage.

They become three times more likely to suffer symptoms of a concussion.

Previous research suggests concussion injuries are mainly from accidental collisions, but the study in the journal neurology says "heading" is related to symptoms including headache, confusion and dizziness.
