An overview of the "Concussions in Sport" Symposium, which took place January 17th 2013 at the Health and Performance Centre. Sports doctor, Dr. Margo Mounjoy and physiotherapist, Brett Lyons discuss the definition of a concussion, diagnosis, treatment options, return to play, special populations and finally, prevention.

"(Jason Smith) says, there’s a difference between health and performance and says there are a number of things I could do to become a better “athlete” — a word that in my case deserves quotation marks. It’s important to continue being vigilant with a regular workout schedule because whatever gains I’ve made are easily lost. Decreases in health or performance accrue year after year — the whole over-the-hill thing at 40, doesn’t really apply as far as science goes, Smith says".
