In this episode of Ask Concussion Doc with Dr. Cameron Marshall, we discuss what to do immediately after a concussion, and when should the initial assessment happen.
We also examine recovery. How do we define it? What’s the difference between asymptomatic and full metabolic recovery? When can an athlete return to activity?
Lastly, we look at concussion prevention. Does neck strength help? What about neck stiffness? Also, helmets and mouthguard are NOT proven to fully protect against concussion. So, what can we actually do to prevent them?
