    Historically reported that 300,000 sport related concussions occur annually in the United States. This is now considered a gross underestimation as original estimates included only if Loss of Consciousness. Epidemiology difficult due to underreporting, but current estimates reach 3.8 million annually for recreation and sport related concussion in United States.
