Concussion is a common sport-related injury for collegiate student athletes. Pressures exist that influence athletes' perceptions and attitudes, consequently impacting the decision-making process surrounding concussion and symptom reporting. Therefore, a holistic approach is needed for education and care. OT can contribute to the interprofessional process with a focus on health, wellness, and prevention that is inclusive of student athlete values, beliefs, and roles both on and off the field.
