Concussion: Latest news and views
Being on the front lines of care for patients of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds means that family physicians are often the first to spot and respond to concussions. Each year, more than 1.6 million concussions occur during sports and other recreational activities in the United States, so vigilance for these injuries is essential. But it's also important to raise awareness among athletes, parents and coaches of the need to seek medical attention for a concussion and then strictly adhere to return-to-play recommendations.
