MEDICAL

A concussion is a brain injury that cannot be seen on routine X-rays, CT scans or MRIs. Concussions may affect cognitive abilities and memory functions, along with various other symptoms. The following are important points to keep in mind for concussion management: 

  1. Recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion
  2. Remove the athlete from the practice or competition
  3. Refer the athlete to a licensed healthcare professional
  4. Return to school and then to sport based on the recommendations of a medical expert

Taekwondo Canada endorses the Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport from Parachute and is currently working on a Taekwondo specific set of guidelines.
