The concern for concussion care and management continues to grow. It has become apparent that there is no longer such a thing as "getting a little dinged up" when it comes to head contact in the process of playing sports.

Any athlete who is even suspected of sustaining a concussion should be taken out of competition and evaluated by a doctor specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of brain injuries, according to new recommendations issued by the American Academy of Neurologists.
