Concussions are prevalent in most every sport around the world. In recent decades, however, the conversations about concussions have become a crucial stimulus for education, understanding of the intricacies of this topic, and for the prevention and treatment of those concussed. Concussions affect people when they first get them. More importantly, research shows the effects from concussions can persist throughout one’s life, causing strains on professional careers, personal lives, and quality of life. Concussion-related issues can also cause long-term health problems such as dementia and depression. This research includes information about concussion occurrence within a wide range of sports, highlights the importance of strategies to help prevent concussions, and steps for successful recovery from a concussion. This includes the protocol for both the medical professional to follow and the person who has been concussed.
