Dual-task effect on gait balance control in adolescents with concussion.
OBJECTIVE To prospectively and longitudinally examine how concussion affects gait balance control in adolescents during single- and dual-task walking. DESIGN Cohort, prospective, repeated-measuresExpand
Effects of concussion on attention and executive function in adolescents.
BACKGROUND Head trauma in adolescents has been linked with deficits in attention and executive function that can compromise the performance of everyday tasks. Although previous research has examinedExpand
Neuromuscular Control Deficits and the Risk of Subsequent Injury after a Concussion: A Scoping Review
An emerging area of research has identified that an increased risk of musculoskeletal injury may exist upon returning to sports after a sport-related concussion. The mechanisms underlying thisExpand
Acute and longitudinal changes in motor cortex function following mild traumatic brain injury
Abstract Primary objective: To evaluate excitability and inhibition of the motor cortex acutely and longitudinally following mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Research design: A longitudinal pairedExpand
The Relative Age Effect on Youth Sports Injuries.
INTRODUCTION/PURPOSE The relative age effect (RAE) has been described as the consequence of differences in ages between individuals within the same age group. In youth sports, relatively olderExpand
Adolescents Demonstrate Greater Gait Balance Control Deficits After Concussion Than Young Adults
Background: Age has been described as a factor that affects recovery after concussion. The recommended management protocol is to treat adolescents in a more cautious manner than adults. However, fewExpand
Initial somatic symptoms are associated with prolonged symptom duration following concussion in adolescents
To determine which initial postinjury symptom domains are independently associated with symptoms lasting >28 days in youth athletes who sustained sport‐related concussions.
Return to activity after concussion affects dual-task gait balance control recovery.
BACKGROUND Recent work has identified deficits in dual-task gait balance control for up to 2 months after adolescent concussion; however, how resumption of preinjury physical activities affectsExpand
Monitoring recovery of gait balance control following concussion using an accelerometer.
Despite medical best-practice recommendations, no consistent standard exists to systematically monitor recovery from concussion. Studies utilizing camera-based systems have reported center-of-massExpand
Gait and Quiet-Stance Performance Among Adolescents After Concussion-Symptom Resolution.
CONTEXT   Concussions affect a large number of US athletes each year. Returning an athlete to activity once self-reported symptoms have resolved can be problematic if unrecognized neurocognitive andExpand
