Concussions in Sports.

Although concussions are common, they are complex, variable, and not entirely understood in terms of pathophysiology and treatment. The incidence of concussion is expected to continue to rise with the increased participation of youth in sports and improved awareness. The role of orthopedic surgeons in concussion management is murky. However, the existing literature does provide a foundation from which orthopedic surgeons who are exposed to concussed patients can function. [Orthopedics. 2019; 42(1):12-21.].
