This chapter examines the various ways in which sociocultural analyses can enhance our understanding of issues related to concussion. It focuses on five areas of brain-injury related research—athlete experience; medical practice; medical knowledge; public health; and cultural representations—and argues that the most adequate analyses view these various areas as fundamentally interconnected. It concludes by drawing on the distinct ‘warrants’ or unique contributions of qualitative health sociology to provide a summary of potential sociocultural contributions to an understanding of concussion, and argues that concussion research is distinctively placed to become a genuinely interdisciplinary field of study.
