CONCUSSIONS: Continuing to play despite a concussion doubles recovery time for teen athletes and leads to worse short-term mental function than in those immediately removed from action, a study found.

It’s billed as the first to compare recovery outcomes for athletes removed from a game or practice compared with those who aren’t. The study was small, involving 69 teens treated at a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center concussion clinic, but the results bolster evidence supporting the growing number of return-to-play laws and policies nationwide.

The study included young athletes from several sports, including football, soccer, ice hockey and basketball who had concussions during a game or practice. It was published Monday in the journal Pediatrics.
