title
Evaluation of Head Injury Biomechanics in Youth Football and Women's Collegiate Soccer Headers
author
Milef, Gabriella M.
abstract
Football and soccer are contact sports associated with high rates of concussion. Most of the head impacts that occur in these sports are subconcussive, and while not associated with the overt signs of a concussion, are suggested to lead to short- and long-term changes in brain structure and function. Most research on head impact exposure (HIE) in both sports is limited to summary statistics of peak kinematics in live practice and game settings.
