This project was conducted with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to investigate physical causes of concussions and prevention methods to address them, particularly in youth sports. Concussions are a form of traumatic brain injury, a leading cause of death and disability among children. After evaluating occurrence data from the Commission’s NEISS database and surveying student athletes, we determined which physical causes of concussions in sports presented potential for a reduction in concussions and encouraged action to address these concerns.
