WESTBOROUGH, MA These educational videos are posted by the National Academy of Neuropsychology and offer viewers the personal stories of elite athletes – many of them are nationally
known. In my practice I have learned that concussion impacts the younger athlete with more unpredictable outcomes and a longer recovery. I have worked with professional and college athletes and have come to know that management of these players is important. Light exertion should be part of their recovery. Individualized return to play protocols are designed for those who suffer a second or third concussion. If this occurs within a single season most athletes are encouraged to shut it down allowing time for complete recovery before competing at 100 percent.
See these videos and Concussion 101 – Dr. Mike Evans interesting take of this injury.
