Sustaining a concussion can be devastating to an athlete. Research suggests focusing on agility, vision training, balance/reaction skills, neck/core muscle strength and spatial awareness can decrease the risk of a sports-related concussion.
Although a concussion can occur in any sport, the highest risk youth sports include soccer, lacrosse, football and basketball. This 6-week program, developed by sports medicine experts at The University of Kansas Health System, is designed for middle school and high school athletes, who want to reduce the risk of concussion and improve their sport performance.
