The American Academy of Neurology, an authority on sports concussion, is encouraging athletes, coaches, athletic trainers, parents and school staff to pay attention to the signs of concussion as students head back to school and onto the sporting fields. The AAN recently updated its guidelines on evaluating and managing concussion at www.aan.com/concussion, and also created a free downloadable Concussion Quick Check mobile app as a useful tool for parents, coaches, trainers and players.
