New guidelines for head injuries encourage more time on sidelines
New guidelines encourage athletes to watch the game from the sidelines if they take a blow to the head.
The American Academy of Neurology now states any athlete suspected of suffering a concussion must be immediately removed from play and not allowed to return until they are evaluated by a medical professional.
In most cases, and especially for teenage athletes, it’s suggested they need a week to 10 days out of the game to recover from a concussion.
