The Temple University Concussion and Athletic Neurotrauma Program
Cerebral concussion, traumatic brain injury, transient spinal cord paralysis and brachial plexus injuries are potentially serious insults to the nervous system that are associated with contact athletic injuries. In accord with the principle that the management and return-to-play decisions should only be made by a qualified professional, Temple University has established its Concussion and Athletic Neurotrauma Program.
Our program meets the requirements of the new Pennsylvania law entitled the "Safety in Youth Sports Act" which takes effect this summer. This law states that all interscholastic athletes removed from play due to a concussion must be cleared for return to play by a medical professional who has been trained in the evaluation and management of concussion.
