The phenomenon of minor head injury is increasingly being recognized as having both immediate and long-term implications for athletes. Physicians, trainers, and coaches play a vital role in the prevention of injury, on-field diagnosis and management, and treatment of sports related concussion. From early recognition of a concussive event to treatment options and possible long-term side effects, all aspects of the neurologic and neuropsychologic evaluation and management of head injury in the athlete are addressed. The book concludes with a lively and informative round-table discussion among professional athletes who have experienced sports-related concussion.
