On April 4, 2018 the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published an article in the Journal of Pediatrics showing that activities children engage in on a daily basis can result in concussions. While the majority of concussions were related to sports and recreational activity (70 percent), 30 percent were due to non-sports and non-recreational mechanisms. Of importance, only 40 percent of all concussions were from contact sports. Read more about this study here.
