A Minnesota Department of Health study found girls, particularly girls who play hockey, are more likely to get a concussion than boys. Brain surgeon Dr. Uzma Samadani says it’s part biological. Boys have stronger necks and thicker skulls.
“And then there are other differences,” Dr. Samadani, who practices out of CentraCare, said. “From a young age, many boys engage in rough play. They tackle each other. They learn to tumble. Many girls don’t do this.”
