Sports concussions are at the center of discussion in the media and amongst parents on ball fields across the country. Concussions seem to be occurring more frequently and causing more serious side effects than ever before. But not everyone knows how to recognize or optimally treat a concussion….not even many in the medical community! Many athletes try to play through a concussion or return too soon before being fully recovered, risking serious brain injury and disability. Dr. Jim Chesnutt, medical director of the OHSU Sports Medicine Program presents a serious discussion on sports concussion management and rehabilitation.
