Abstract

Rates of concussion in soccer are high, especially in female players. The primary aim of this study was to examine differences in self-reported concussion-related symptoms (CRS), balance (BESS), and neurocognitive performance (ImPACT) following an acute bout of soccer heading in a group of female collegiate players with and without a history of concussion. Eighty-seven players with 0 to 3+ previous concussions participated. The measurement variables were assessed before and after heading sessions; including one linear and one rotational bout. Players with concussion histories reported more CRS than their non-concussed teammates both before and after the heading sessions. Balance and neurocognitive scores were generally unaffected. This finding should heighten our awareness to carefully monitor soccer players who have experienced concussions and be aware that they may develop concussion-like symptoms, especially after acute bouts of heading either during practice or in matches. The long-term implications of this finding remain unknown.
