Abstract

Background: Sleep disturbances are a common symptom following concussions to include athletic concussion. Review: This review applies literature on sleep following traumatic brain injury and concussion to sport concussions and places these considerations in the context of sleep and athletic performance. It also includes a description of sleep abnormalities in sleep duration, quality and timing as well as recommended treatment approaches. Finally, it includes a brief discussion of emerging paradigms of sleep and concussion recovery.
