(cdc.gov) “For me, recovering from the concussion was harder than recovering from other injuries I’ve had. When I got a concussion playing soccer, I expected to sit out some games, but I never realized that it would actually hurt to think,” said Sarah Rainey, a high school varsity soccer player.

While most athletes with a concussion recover quickly and fully, some like Sarah, will have symptoms that last for days, weeks, or even months. This doesn’t just affect an athlete on the sports field, but can impact their ability to participate in school and even their daily activities.
