My wife was involved in an accident while playing soccer and reported being dizzy. The coach said she might have a traumatic brain injury after heading the ball and colliding with another player. Is that possible?

Yes, if while playing soccer your wife headed the ball and collided head-to-head with another player, she may have sustained a traumatic brain injury. Some of the symptoms that one may expect to experience after a head injury may include difficulty concentrating, headaches, irritability, nausea and difficulty balancing. These signals may not manifest until several hours or days later.

If the coach suggests your wife may have sustained such an injury, it is best to immediately seek medical aid. It would also be a good idea to stop playing on the field, or run the risk of making the concussion worse.
