With more young people playing contact sports, the concussion rates among student-athletes continue to rise.
According to our research, 5 to 8 percent of high school football players will suffer a concussion this year.
“A well-managed concussion is the best form of prevention.”
Dr. Michael “Micky” Collins, executive director, UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program.
