Sports Concussion Resources (American Academy of Neurology)

Description:

Each year, 1.6 to 3.8 million concussions result from sports/recreation injuries in the United States. Sports concussion can affect athletes of any age, gender, or type or level of sport played. While most concussions result in full recovery, some can lead to more severe injuries if not identified early and treated properly.

The American Academy of Neurology is the world's largest association of neurologists, and the trusted authority on sports concussion.

A neurologist is a doctor with specialized training in diagnosing, treating, and managing disorders of the brain and nervous system such as concussion, Alzheimer's disease, stroke, migraine, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsy.
