Recent incidents of professional football players suffering concussions – and questions surrounding the follow-up treatment they received - have thrust concussions into the national spotlight. But the problem reaches all the way down to the youth sport level. And it’s not just football; soccer, basketball, lacrosse, field hockey, wrestling – any sport that sees player-to-player contact - all see their share of concussions. What can be done to prevent concussions from occurring, improve treatment, and minimize their long-term effects?
