Education Needed to Deal With Youth Sports Concussions
from Boston Globe
Most experts agree that the best way to prevent concussions is education. Research indicates that youths are more susceptible to brain damage, and long-term problems appear more likely if an athlete returns to play before his or her brain has had a chance to heal. Females and younger athletes may take longer to recover from concussions, according to a study published in April in the American Journal of Sports Medicine.
