... And here’s a note of encouragement to those concerned about the possibility of a recurrence of a concussion [of Avs player Peter Mueller]: I spoke recently with noted concussion specialist, Dr. Robert Cantu of Boston University’s school of medicine. He said that there is no medical evidence at all to support that the assumption that those who have had concussions are more susceptible to getting another one. Once a concussion has healed, he said, the “patient” has no greater chance of getting another one than you or me.
Perhaps it's based on the definition of "healed"?
The number of hours/days/weeks/months without symptoms before a player should be cleared to return to play?
