When an athlete suffers a concussion, post-injury neurocognitive testing and comprehensive care are crucial.
Concussions can occur in any sport or physical activity. As children and athletes of all ages are playing longer and harder and we all are moving faster than ever before, the potential for concussions (classified as mild traumatic brain injuries), continues to increase.

Head injuries are not limited to contact sports. Consider gymnastics, biking, a car accident, or even falling from a ladder at home or on the job.
