The topic of concussions has generated increasing attention in the world of sports while also gaining the attention of medical expertise. Athletes who suffer from a concussion are at risk of prolonged absence and may be forced to end their sports career well ahead of plan. The media is filled with stories of prominent athletes suffering from long-term side effects such as severe headaches, nausea, sensitivity to noise and light, and depression, after one or multiple concussions.
