CHICAGO -- 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. Ken Crawley Jersey .Its billed as the first to compare recovery outcomes for athletes removed from a game or practice compared with those who arent. 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 nationwideThe study was published Monday in the journal Pediatrics.KEEPING SCOREThe study involved athletes aged 15 on average from several sports, including football, soccer, ice hockey and basketball who had concussions during a game or practice. Half continued to play and took 44 days on average to recover from symptoms, versus 22 days in those who were immediately sidelined.Sidelined players reported symptoms immediately, including dizziness, headaches, mental fogginess and fatigue, and were diagnosed with concussions by trainers or team physicians. The others, who continued playing for 19 minutes on average, delayed reporting symptoms and were diagnosed later.Those who continued to play had worse scores on mental function tests performed eight days after the concussion and 30 days after the concussion. Medical records showed mental function had been similar in all players before their concussions.RISKY RETURNSReturn-to-play policies are widespread, especially in youth athletics, and they typically recommend sidelining players after a suspected concussion until symptoms resolve. One of the main reasons is to prevent a rare condition called second-impact syndrome -- potentially fatal brain swelling or bleeding that can occur when a player still recovering from a concussion gets hit again in the head.The study results show that a prolonged recovery is another important risk from returning to play too soon -- one that no one had really calculated until now, said Dr. Allen Sills, a Vanderbilt University neurosurgeon. He was not involved in the research.NOT REPORTEDAbout 300,000 sports-related concussions occur each year nationwide among all ages. In high school athletics, they occur at a rate of almost 3 per 10,000 games or practices.Evidence suggests up to 50 percent of concussions in teen sports arent reported. Athletes are sometimes not aware theyve experienced a concussion, or they suspect a head injury but continue playing because they dont want to let their teammates down, said University of Arkansas concussion researcher R.J. Elbin, the studys lead author.The results give us more ammunition to persuade young athletes to heed the return-to-play advice, Elbin said.---Online:Pediatrics: http://www.pediatrics.orgCDC: http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/---Follow AP Medical Writer Lindsey Tanner at http://www.twitter.com/LindseyTanner.

John Phillips Jersey . Calgary scored on the first shift, and Michael Cammalleri scored twice as the Flames cruised to a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Saturday. http://www.saintsfootballpro.com/Saints-Archie-Manning-Jersey/ . 24 Baylor in a Big 12 clash between teams trending in opposite directions. Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4, 5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents unscathed. Parx Racing will increase the purse for the Pennsylvania Derby to $1.5 million if the winners of all three 2016 Triple Crown events start in the Sept. 24 race, the track announced Tuesday.Sam Elliott, director of racing and racing secretary at the suburban Philadelphia track, said officials saw it as a unique opportunity to get Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist , Exaggerator [Preakness], and Creator [Belmont Stakes] in the same starting gate for the first time since the Derby and in the last major race strictly for 3-year-olds. All three presumably could clash again at Santa Anita in the Nov. 5 Breeders Cup Classic, a race open to 3-year-olds and upward.The Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby, run at 1-1/8 miles, already is worth $1 million. The purse will be increased to $1.25 million if two of the three start, said Elliott.Trainer Doug ONeill already has said he intends the Pennsylvania Derby to be the only race for Nyquist prior to the Breeders Cup. In the meantime, Creator and Exaggerator are at Saratoga training toward the Aug. 27 Travers Stakes, which comes four weeks prior to the Pennsylvania Derby. Elliott said the respective connections of those horses have expressed interest in coming for the Pennsyllvania Derby, assuming all goes well in the Travers. A.J. Klein Jersey. Pennsylvania Derby bonuses of $100,000 already are paid not only for every win in a Triple Crown race, but also for a win in the Haskell, which was won July 31 by Exaggerator, and in the Travers.In 2014, bonuses of $300,000 were paid when California Chrome (Kentucky Derby and Preakness) and Bayern (Haskell) ran in the Pennsylvania Derby. Bayern led throughout to win, with California Chrome sixth as an odds-on favorite.In 2015, there were no bonuses paid when Frosted won the Pennsylvania Derby. American Pharoah accounted for all the preceding races except the Travers, won by Keen Ice.Daily Racing Form charts show total handle for the 13-race Pennsylvania Derby card in 2014 totaling $9.48 million, while the handle for an 11-race card in 2015 was $5.32 million.Theres a sizable difference that having these marquee horses can make, said Elliott.The Sept. 24 card at Parx also includes a $1 million race for 3-year-old fillies, the Grade 1 Cotillion, along with the Grade 3 Gallant Bob and two other ungraded stakes.
