Abstract

Despite the most meticulous preparation for the most noncontact of sports, head injuries are a fact of daily life. Physicians should continue to strive to decrease the occurrence of these injuries by monitoring events for adherence to guidelines designed to reach this end. Contributing to policymaking, unannounced spot checks at practices and games, and appropriate on-site and follow-up care may help minimize the complications and sequelae of this injury.
