Continued participation after sport-related concussion (SRC) worsens outcomes, but it is unknown if duration of continued participation after SRC impacts recovery outcomes, and which athletes who continue to participate are at greatest risk for poor SRC outcomes. The purpose of this National Collegiate Athletic Association/Department of Defense (NCAA/DoD) Concussion Assessment, Research, and Education (CARE) Consortium study was to evaluate the association of estimated duration of continued participation after SRC with symptom severity and recovery time in collegiate athletes.
