Concussion, also known as mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), is defined as a complex pathophysiological process induced by biomechanical forces1. Concussion can occur with or without loss of consciousness and can result in many other symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, reduced attention and concentration, memory problems and headaches.

Currently, there is little agreement among medical professionals on how to define, diagnose, or treat concussion. Doctors recommend one week’s rest following a concussion, however, there is very little hard evidence to suggest that this is adequate. If an athlete were to suffer from a knee injury, they may be forced to stop playing for several months – unfortunately, if something were to happen to the brain, there is currently no scientific way to determine when it will be safe to return to play.

Research is ongoing with regards to the long-term effects of multiple concussions and it is thought to be linked to a syndrome called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE)2, a neurodegenerative disorder due to repeated head trauma.

It is clear that concussion and its potential long-term consequences are a significant public health issue. Given this understanding, the Drake Foundation is dedicated to increase efforts in facilitating our understanding of sports-related concussion to improve measures for participant safety.
