|While education and awareness about concussion is growing, many athletes still neglect to report their injuries. Why? |
Is it due to the culture of sport and toughness? Is it because many believe concussions aren't that serious of an injury? Is it because athletes may not want to let their teammates down or miss the big game?
There are many myths and beliefs about concussion that impact whether or not an athlete chooses to report their injuries. We need MORE concussion awareness and education for not only athletes, but coaches, trainers, parents, executives and healthcare professionals.
