Sports related concussion in professional and amateur sports alike can result in profound long term health effects and on occasion can be life threatening.
Every concussion is unique and must be managed individually.
Self-reported recovery does not ensure full recovery.
Return to play before full recovery puts athletes at risk.
Management by independent healthcare professionals reduces the risks associated with concussion and removes the pressure athletes put on themselves to return to play and the implicit or explicit pressure from others.
