Youth Concussion in Sports

A concussion is a type of brain injury known as MTBI (Mild Traumatic Brain Injury)  


All major professional sports and athletes recognize this.

Terms such as “ding” or “bell rung” minimize and trivialize an injury that may have lasting consequences.

All injuries to the brain, regardless of how apparently minor they seem should be managed appropriately.
