  • Overview

    Most athletes' concussions are not the result of the kind of hits that NFL players take, but they still need to be taken very seriously. The American Academy of Neurology now recommends all athletes suspected of a concussion be removed from the field immediately. Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, director of Michigan NeuroSport, the sports neurology program at the University of Michigan and chair of the American Academy of Neurology's sports neurology section, joins host Dr. Anthony Alessi to discuss changes in neurologists' philosophy toward concussion, who the new guidelines are aimed at and how to reach them, and what treatment will be like in the future.
