A new study says that nearly 2 million concussions from sports or play activities occur in U.S. children and teens each year and many receive no treatment.

The estimate is based on 2013 data from hospitals, doctors' offices, high schools and previous concussion studies.

The study was led by doctors at Seattle Children's Hospital.
