Matthew Grady, MD, and Christina Master, MD, concussion experts from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, explain why it's very important to not delay evaluation and management of a concussion. Early recognition followed by early rest are the best solution for long-term recovery. Delaying the evaluation will mean the symptoms will linger and recovery will take longer. They also talk about the return-to-play protocol which gives the best indication of an athlete's readiness to return to play.
