Concussions are traumatic brain injuries impacting upwards of 3 million athletes per year. Female collegiate athletes are an essential group of athletes to investigate as they account for 47% of all collegiate athletes and often suffer more severe concussions with worse concussion symptoms than their male counterparts. Many symptoms are associated with concussion such as dizziness nausea, headaches, and instability, however, some injury symptoms extend beyond physical symptoms. The symptoms that extend beyond physical often mimic different psychosocial factors like depression and anxiety. This study investigated the associations of injury, the duration of symptoms, and the psychosocial impacts of injury on female collegiate athletes.
