CDC estimates reveal that between 1.6 million and 3.8 million concussions occur each year. 5-10% of athletes will experience a concussion in any given sport. The most common youth sports in which concussions occur are boys football and girls soccer. Only 78% of concussions occur during games; the remaining 22% occurring during practices. It is important to look out for concussion symptoms for 48 hours following a head injury, for an estimated 47% of athletes do not report feeling any symptoms directly following a concussive blow. Some symptoms to be aware of include headaches, dizziness, and nausea. In a case when these symptoms occur, be sure to seek medical attention and DO NOT return to sports until cleared by a therapist and medical professional. Performax therapists offer post-concussion testing for clearance to return to sports!


Concussions in youth sports are more common and more serious than many people realize. When suffering from a blow to the head, a child should seek medical attention within 48 hours to be assessed for any concussion symptoms; Some concussion symptoms may not arise for several hours after the injury occurs. Children should never return to playing sports after undergoing a concussion without being evaluated and cleared by a medical professional. Base line testing is highly recommended so that we can have pre-concussion results to refer to when testing kids on their ability to return to sports.
