Management guidelines for participation in collision activities with congenital, developmental, or post-injury lesions involving the cervical spine.

Abstract

We believe that the aforementioned management guidelines for participation in collision activities for individuals with congenital, developmental, or postinjury lesions involving the cervical spine have been formulated on the basis of the best information available to date. It is recognized that modifications may occur as more data are collected. We emphasize that these proposed guidelines should be used in the decision-making process in conjunction with such other factors as age, experience, ability of the individual, level of participation, and position played. A most important consideration is the attitude and desire of the individual and his parents following an informed discussion of the problem with particular regard to potential risks.
