There is an inherent risk for injury in any sport. While we can’t entirely prevent concussions, research shows that receiving a second concussion prior to full recovery of the first can potentially lead to long-term complications. Therefore, it’s crucial that we help players make a full symptomatic and metabolic (or brain) recovery before they return to play.
