Assessment of post-concussion symptoms is implemented at secondary, post-secondary, and professional levels of athletics. Network theory suggests that disorders can be viewed as a set of interacting symptoms that amplify, reinforce, and maintain one another. Examining the network structure of post-concussion symptoms may provide new insights into symptom comorbidity and may inform targeted treatment. We used network analysis to examine the topology of post-concussion symptoms using the Post-Concussion Symptom Scale (PCSS) in high school athletes with recent suspected sport-related concussion.
