Concussion linked to greater academic dysfunction than extremity injury in students

May 25, 2016

Recent findings published in the American Journal of Public Health showed that students experienced greater academic dysfunction 1 week after concussion compared with students who experienced extremity injuries. However, 1 month after injury, there was no difference between the groups.

“Most students who play sports are not going to become professional athletes,” Erin B. Wasserman, PhD, at the Matthew Gfeller Sport-Related Traumatic Brain Injury Research Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, said in a press release. “But, they will need to continue with school and prepare for a career.”
