What are some health issues athletes face? Life scIence Genius hour

Doctors and medical staff can stitch medical devices on athletes. When athletes then run around in practice, they can track the athletes muscles, and performance.
When athletes get injuries, there are multiple things that they can do. One of those things is sitting in a cold room. When athletes sit in this cold room, it has cold air flowing through it constantly, and this helps the athletes recover faster.
Tons of athletes have used the cold room, and for some this is actually a routine.
Conditions like asthma can be very deadly if not treated well, so you must always treat asthma.
Obviously every condition must be treated well, but some are more deadly than others.
Another common injury that athletes suffer is a concussion. Concussions are caused when you receive a.blow to the head or body, a fall, or another injury that jars or shakes the brain inside the skull
With rest, most people fully recover from a concussion. Some people recover within a few hours. Other people take a few weeks to recover.
