Youth athletes who receive concussions are often returning to fields or courts prior to receiving medical clearance to do so, a recent study appearing in the Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery found.
The study, published in July, looked at 150 pediatric patients ages 8 to 17 who were diagnosed with concussion during a one-year period. The study took place from November 2011 to November 2012 in a pediatric ED at a regional level 1 trauma center.
