Athletes Often Suffer A Concussion – Part 3 of 3
Although the study found an association between playing sports at higher altitude and lower concussion danger among high school athletes, it did not prove a cause-and-effect relationship. The next step in this research may be to look at professional sports, according to Comstock. “If this study is correct, we should look to replicate our findings in the National Football League. For example, if the Broncos horseplay the Chargers in San Diego or the Dolphins in Miami they should experience more concussions than when they play here in Denver”.
