Concussion Resources

Concussions are considered the "invisible" injury, since they do not show up on medical imaging tests such as x-rays or CT scans. But they are also considered "invisible" because their effects are often misunderstood. The following resources are designed to help physicians, coaches, parents, and athletes understand and navigate the sometimes difficult process of recovery from concussions.
