Coping with concussions in youths



Professional Physical Therapy and Clinical Director Brian Simon are included on Asbury Park Press Online in a piece on titled “Coping with concussions: Maybe rest isn’t the best idea for youths.”

Within the article, Brian discusses that parents are often asking whether or not they should let their children play football, stating that he often gets that question from parents and “that’s a decision for them to make, but I do tell them if they’re going to let their kid play, learn to play the right way — the right way to hit (lead with the body, not with the head) and the proper way to use equipment. I haven’t told a parent, unless there’s a medical reason, to not let them play.” The article can be found here
