Making the Public Aware - Creating Solutions for Healthier Athletes
Concussion Solutions was created to provide a cutting edge concussion management program that will allow parents, coaches, and student-athletes’ access to a team of experts trained specifically in the management of sport-related concussions. This partnership combines local certified athletic trainers (ATC), board certified physicians, and the most current technology to provide the only comprehensive management solution in this area.
In the United States, the annual incidence of sports-related concussion is estimated between 1.6 and 3.8 million per year. Estimates regarding the likelihood of an athlete in a contact sport experiencing a concussion may be as high as 19% per season. In a study done in 2008 on a nationwide sample of 5 to 18 year olds, 135,000 sport-related concussion emergency room visits accounted for approximately $133 million annually in charges to the parents of student-athletes. If you think these numbers are alarming, what’s more alarming is the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of sport-related concussions that go unreported every day. With the increased awareness of sport-related concussions over the last few years at both the professional and collegiate levels, wouldn’t it make sense to protect what’s most precious to you?
