Example text

The issue is much more complex than that. Issues like depression, substance abuse, chronic pain, and even sleep apnea may underlie many athletes’ suicides, just as they do those of non-​athletes. Having an improved awareness and respect for concussions in athletes as a serious medical issue is a tremendous step forward. This improved awareness is a positive in the growth of the medical community and the education of the public at large. But the outgrowth of kids being held out of sports because of fears over concussion, as seen by the continued downturn in participation in Pop Warner football, is a sad development for everybody.

I learned something that first day on the sideline and in the week that followed that would change my mindset: Concussions have their own dynamic.  . you’ve seen one concussion. Each situation is unique, and each injury its own challenge. Taking a simplified approach to concussion does our patients a huge disservice. Time and again, we hear about the new test that will help physicians, athletic trainers, and even non-​medical staff, coaches, and parents to diagnose concussion. Again, I wish it were that simple.

Th r e e -​ You Think You Might Have a Concussion—​H ow Do You Know? T hings would be a lot easier if we had a quick, easy, and reliable test for concussion. Coaches, parents, and especially our patients would love to receive a red light/​green light, yes-​or-​no, quick, and definitive diagnosis from the medical professionals evaluating them on the sidelines. We are not there yet, medically or scientifically. Not even close. That was true the very first time I was asked to cover a college football game as a physician, over 10 years ago, and it’s still true today.
