Newswise: Return to Play After a Concussion is 19 Days

Return to Play After a Concussion is 19 Days

Henry Ford Health System

With NFL training camps under way for the 2019 season, a Henry Ford Hospital study on concussions found that the time players are sidelined has nearly doubled in the past 20 years. Sports medicine researchers at Henry Ford evaluated data from the 2012-2015 seasons and found that players who sustained a concussion returned to play on average 19 days later. That’s the equivalent of missing about 1 ½ games. When players returned to play, however, researchers found no significant decline in performance up to three years after injury compared to those who didn’t sustain a concussion. The study specifically evaluated data involving NFL running backs and wide receivers.

Cat Walks into the ER

Henry Ford Health System

His brown coat matted from the rain, he had entered through the automatic sliding door at the walk-in entrance, turned the corner and stepped through the metal detector without setting it off. Standing in front of the towering security desk and unaware of his surroundings, he then tried to get someone’s attention as he only knew how. He began meowing. What happened next will warm your heart.
