Useful Head Injury Resources
The science and practical management of head injury in sports is continuously evolving. There is ample evidence indicating potentially significant and permanent deficits in athletes with minor head injuries especially if allowed to go back too early. The links below will provide the physician with useful information on how to recognize and assess a head injury or sports concussion when to send a player back to activity as well as general information regarding head injuries.
Further guidelines for a pediatric concussion can be found at pediatric sport concussion guidelines.
