Dr. Mannix talked about the silent injury that is concussion.  As an emergency room physician she noted that most injuries do not show up in the computerized tomography (C-T scan).  Athletes should rest following injury but recovery is different with all athletes – especially the younger players. Treatment options were discussed with Dale Arnold – NESN Sport Bruins Face-Off Live host.
