Concussion: from early recognition to return to...

From 2016 to today the incidence of concussion is reaching significant values. It is a high-risk and unpredictable injury both in sport and in everyday life and which can be caused by domestic and road accidents, occupational and sports injuries, physical violence. The numbers of concussive events are around 1.6-3.8 million annually during sport and recreational activities. The growing "epidemic" of concussions in recent years reflects the increased concern of patients and their families, caused by the overabundance of both information on the subject that is often poorly evidence-based and of providers offering miraculous post-concussion treatments. The world of post-Concussion therapies is described as the “wild west”, a term that clearly highlights the need to create appropriate therapeutic standards.
