Concussion in Sport


The Latest in Diagnosis and Management

Concussion, also known as mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), is a very common condition in the United States, accounting for 80% of all traumatic brain injuries, with as many as 3.8 million injuries occurring yearly from sport-related events alone. Although the vast majority of individuals with a single concussion recover within days to weeks, a significant minority develops long-term problems, which collectively are known as post-concussion syndrome.
