Sport-related concussion has received significant attention in recent years. Media coverage of multiple injuries to several high-profile athletes, some of whom were forced into retirement because of repeated concussions, has created a welcome awareness among sports medicine personnel and the general public. Many of the questions that researchers have failed to address in the past are now being studied. Despite the complexities associated with studying sport-related concussion, answers to some of the more intriguing questions are on the horizon.
I believe that you will find that this special issue on sport-related concussion provides the answers to many of these very important questions. Answers to other questions that have yet to be answered are just on the horizon and will eventually provide athletic trainers and team physicians with answers that are likely to change the way in which this very complex injury is managed. I thank all of the authors, reviewers, editors, and editorial staff for their commitment to this project. I hope that this special issue on sport-related concussion will become your most useful and referenced holding for managing cases involving an athlete with concussion.
