Football players aren’t the only ones who get concussions, so do farmers

Football season is fun for the whole community, but with it comes a risk of concussions for players. This may not be the first injury that comes to mind when you think of farming, but it’s not at all uncommon.

According to Ohio State University Extension, farmers are at a high risk of this form of traumatic brain injury because of falling, working with livestock, and maneuvering heavy tools and equipment. Activities like lying underneath raised equipment, squeezing into tight spaces to make repairs, and working in low-visibility conditions can also lead to concussions.
