Over the past couple of years there has been a heightened awareness and concern regarding concussions. While health care professionals continue to learn more about the effects of concussions they agree on at least one very important factor: diagnosis and treatment of this injury is difficult because of the nature of the injury. Some have said, "...where you can look at a knee arthroscopically the same isn't true of the brain..." and "...current technology and scanning doesn't always show this injury making recognition of the symptoms that much more important."
