As training for spring sports is set to begin, concussions aren't the only thing that athletes and parents should look out for. A new study published in a neurology journal, Brain, further shows that repetitive, non-concussive hits also cause the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

Dr. Ricky Kalra, neurosurgery medical director at Medical City Lewisville, spoke with NewsRadio 1080 KRLD AM about this study and what the public needs to know.
