Graded Aerobic Treadmill Testing in Children and Adolescents With Sports-related Concussion

Graded aerobic treadmill testing is safe, tolerable and useful in evaluating and managing cases of sports-related concussion in children and adolescents.

Similar studies have been performed but only in adults. This is the first study to focus exclusively on young athletes. To read more, click here.
