    Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

    in Health

    March 27, 2015: At Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas, physical therapists often see patients who have suffered a mild traumatic brain injury or concussion in the line of duty. Sometimes the concussion is the result of an explosion in combat. Other times, it might be due to a fall or collision during training.

    Lt Col Tony Cromer Jr, suffered a concussion due to a more common workplace hazard, when his head was slammed by an opening door. The effects of that workplace accident, including headaches and dizziness, were the same as they often are for soldiers on the battlefield.

    In this episode, physical therapist Miriam Hammerle, PT, Cert SMT, and Cromer discuss his injury and treatment.

    NFL Concussion Settlement, Co-lead Council Chris Seeger with Important Info!

    in Football

    We are very fortunate to have Chris Seeger, Co Lead Counsel in the Concussion legal action against the NFL, join us to discuss the NFL concussion settlement and get some of the info YOU NEED TO KNOW in order to make the best decision for yourself and your loved ones!

    From the Seeger Weiss website......."More recently, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania appointed Mr. Seeger in 2012 to lead the highly visible and contentious multidistrict litigation against the National Football League arising out of concussion-related injuries sustained by thousands of former NFL players over the past several decades. In the face of significant legal and scientific obstacles, Mr. Seeger brought all of his experience and diplomacy to bear as chief negotiator in crafting a $765 million global settlement for thousands of former NFL athletes in August of 2013."

    The Real Football Wives (and Lives) program does not endorse any particular position in the concussion lawsuit.  We believe that everyone involved should be as informed as possible, possess the facts and make the right decision as it applies to their own situation.  

    Due to the importance of this matter and the upcoming deadline for retired players to respond, this conversation and episode will focus exclusively on this particular discussion and our guest Mr. Chris Seeger.

    A Different Approach to Managing Post Concussion Syndrome

    in Sports

    Concussions typically occur after a person falls, gets into an auto accident, is the victim of a violent assault, or suffers a blow to the head during impact sports—especially boxing and football.

    Post-concussion syndrome, (PCS), refers to the lingering symptoms following a concussion or a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). It is typically diagnosed when a person who has recently suffered a head injury continues to feel at least three of the main symptoms following a concussion. 

    Shannon McGuire provides innovative multidisciplinary approach to helping those with PCS to improve their symptoms and return to activities they enjoy.

    Shannon joins us LIVE on Wednesday, April 23rd, @ 7PM EST at BEYONDtheCheers on blogtalkradio. Listen to any BtC episode at anytime → via iTunes Radio on any iPhone, iPad or computer with iTunes.
