Prevention of Sport Related Concussion

Introduction

Prevention of sport-related concussion can be considered across a spectrum and includes primary (prevention concussions in healthy individuals), secondary (preventing concussion recurrence), and tertiary (prevention of long-term consequences). All facets of injury prevention are important but shifting towards a focus on primary prevention will have the greatest public health impact in reducing the burden of concussion and its consequences. Broadly speaking, research evaluating concussion prevention strategies has considered personal protective equipment, policy and rule changes, training strategies, and management.
