High school athletes are more vulnerable to concussion than college athletes.
Those are the findings of an extensive study on sports related concussions.
Researchers found a “culture of resistance” among athletes to report and follow treatment plans.
The National Academy of Science study discovered high school football players are almost twice as likely to have concussions as their college counterparts.
The study’s author doesn’t know if there’s an actual increase of concussions in younger players.
He says high schoolers in the study may be more willing to report having symptoms.
