Study Concludes Isometric Cervical Muscle Strength May Mitigate Concussion Severity

The British Journal of Sports Medicine has published an abstract from the 4th International Conference on Concussion in Sport, which addresses how Isometric Cervical Muscle can mitigate the risk and severity of concussion.

After testing 21 American collegiate football players, the authors of the study concluded that “the cervical musculature may play a role in mitigating head impact severity among collegiate football players. Sports medicine professionals and strength and conditioning coaches should continue exploring the potential benefits of cervical strengthening programmes on head injury prevention.”
