As many as four million concussions occur annually, according to the Brain Injury Research Institute, and many of those happen to middle and high school athletes.
Despite more knowledge and awareness surrounding sports-related concussions in youth, parents, educators, and student athletes continue to be confused and frustrated when faced with a concussion. Many student athletes have a prolonged recovery and struggle with lingering symptoms that prevent them from returning to their normal lives, including academics and sports.
Come and learn the most up-to-date guidelines and best practices regarding concussion management from a multi-disciplinary panel of professionals who specialize in the assessment and treatment of youth with sports-related concussions.
