Concussions in Sports
Concussions are a hot topic and extremely common - 1 in 5 high school athletes will sustain a concussion this year. And in the case of youth club sports, those numbers are climbing. An effective strategy to identify, treat and return young concussed athletes to play safely is lacking. This puts our youth at tremendous risk not to mention the potential legal issues an organization faces if an injury is mishandled. A solution to this growing problem is not only the right thing to do at this point - it has become a necessity.
