Most high school football players will continue playing with a concussion

(May 7, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Cincinnati – A new report presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies annual meeting finds that many high school football players think it is OK to continue playing with a concussion. Researchers surveyed 120 high school football players, asking participants if they had had concussions in the past and if they would continue playing even with symptoms of a concussion. Results showed 70% of the players were well educated about concussions, and that 91% were aware of the risk of serious harm if they returned to play too soon. However, more than half of the participants admitted they would continue playing with concussion symptoms.
