A new government study finding more kids are getting concussions while on the playground.
FOX's Lisa Lacerra has more:
Of almost 215,000 kids on average treated yearly, almost 10 percent of kids age 14 and younger, about 21,000 annually, had traumatic brain injuries, including concussions after an incident on the playground. Only non-fatal injuries were included.
The study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control examined national data from 2001 through 2013. In 2005, 23 out of 100,000 kids had traumatic brain injuries, a rate that jumped to 48 out of 100,000 in 2013.
Researchers say the rise may mean parents are becoming increasingly aware of the potential seriousness of concussions and the need for treatment. And they say its also possible more kids are using playground equipment and they also say adult supervision is key to preventing those injuries.
