Description

Many students at the University of Dayton participate in intramural sports of all kinds. One topic that is growing rapidly in the health and sports world is concussion. Concussions can be diagnosed or undiagnosed but exist either way. The purpose of our study is to survey students across the University of Dayton who participate in intramural sports and understand their perceptions and knowledge of concussions. We expect that the intramural athletes will be less worried than collegiate and professional athletes to sustain a concussion because intramural sports are typically for recreational purpose. We also expect students to be less worried about returning to their sport after sustaining a concussion because there is a less intense approach to intramural sports. We hope to raise more awareness among students about concussions in intramural sports and possibly spark more research of concussions in intramural sports.
