Mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) is an all-too-frequent occurrence among amateur and professional athletes alike. The increased attention it has received in recent literature may suggest that incidence of this injury has risen. The frequency of MTBI in general may be rising with the increased interest in so-called noncontact sports such as soccer, snowboarding, skateboarding, and motocross. Despite significant improvements made in the quality of protective equipment, head injury remains common in football, soccer, and amateur boxing. The management of athletes who suffer traumatic head injury remains problematic for coaches, trainers, team physicians, primary care physicians, and neurologic specialists. This article addresses guidelines, and diagnostic and treatment protocols to help with the management of athletes with concussion and traumatic head injuries.
