Concussions have received a lot of attention in the news recently.  It seems we can’t open up a newspaper or watch a news broadcast without hearing about concussions in sports, and how dangerous playing with a concussion can be.  Although some might dismiss these reports as media hype, a concussion is a serious injury that is finally getting the attention it deserves.  It is important for all members of the ‘concussion management team,’ including coaches, athletes, school administrators, physicians, athletic trainers, and other health care providers, to understand what a concussion is, how to recognize a concussion, and properly manage a concussion.  Enter ConcussionWise,  a family of quality online education programs designed to provide the most up-to-date information regarding concussion prevention, recognition, care and recovery.
