Prior to October 2011, 17-year-old Madeline Uretsky was a four-sport athlete, straight ‘A’ student, member of many extracurricular clubs, winner of several academic awards, and invited to attend student leadership conferences. A self-proclaimed positive person, proactive and enthusiastic student and lover of family and friends, Madeline’s life flipped after she was diagnosed with two concussions within months of each other.
Madeline was ordered “complete brain rest” by her doctor. This meant no phone, no television, no computer, no texting, no coloring, no going out, and hardly any stimulation. All she wanted to do was sleep. There has been a 60% increase in Traumatic Brain Injuries, amongst children and adolescents, including those who had suffered a concussion during the last decade.
Madeline Uretsky and her mother Jami are prepared to share their struggles and story about life after concussion to educate and bring awareness to others.

Today parents, athletes and sport associations are caught up in a concussion conundrum! While education and awareness about concussions is attracting more attention, the legal path of concussive incidents is one seldom ventured or understood.
Now, policies, products, rules and the law are beginning to address the issue head on (pun intended). States, provinces and countries are looking to establish legal guidelines regarding who should be responsible for the athletes and their safety. “While the National Football League (NFL) has made several sweeping changes to its player safety regulations over the last decade, Dr. Robert Cantu, of Sport Legacy Institute, said those standards aren’t being replicated in youth football”
It’s time for the nation to wake up and demand that those in charge of full-contact youth sports be held accountable. Parents of aspiring young football players need assurance that the safety of their children, ages five to fourteen, is a priority. It may be time for parents to demand changes to the rules and policies in youth football for whenever a child suffers a head injury. Katherine “Price” Snedaker and Paul Anderson share their knowledge on how the law and how concussions can affect you and your kids.

Daniel Brett loved the game of football. Even as his football career began at the age of eleven, Daniel’s dream was to play for the University of Miami Hurricane. He was tough and versatile playing offense, defense and special teams, rarely leaving the field.
He loved it and was good at it.
Daniel suffered a number of concussions during his young playing career, but never complained. He never told anyone he was hurt until August 24, 2009.
Daniel never told anyone – neither coaches nor his parents – how many times he got hit in the head, was sick, dizzy, and had headaches. A Tylenol here and there was all he asked for.
Eventually he was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome.
Nothing helped his chronic headaches, growing depression, sluggishness, nor his apathy. Daniel’s value judgment and behavior deteriorated as he tried in vain to alleviate his pain through self-medication.
Daniel took his own life in May 2011 as a result of the several disabilities resulting from his brain injury.
Dealing with a child with post-concussion syndrome doesn’t come in the parents manual for kids.

Concussions are among the most difficult to manage injuries in sport today. Sport-related concussions are becoming a growing concern among athletes and medical professionals alike, as they are amongst the most common of injuries. The NHL alone averages about 75 concussions per year, and junior hockey concussion rates are believed to be much higher Concussions account for 15% of all sport related injuries in high school athletes NFL had over 200 reported concussions this season There are
Preventing concussion injury in sports is nearly impossible. Sports are second only to motor vehicle crashes as the leading cause of traumatic brain injury among people aged 15 to 24 years. This is a massive issue of great concern to all parents. An estimated 300,000 sport-related traumatic brain injuries, predominantly concussions, occur annually in the United States. There are special helmets in development with space age technology and shock-absorbing padding which means this “p

Michael Rosenthal, PhD, is a pediatric neuropsychologist with expertise in the evaluation and treatment of children and adolescents from pre-school through early adulthood. He is specialized in diagnostic, developmental, and neuropsychological evaluations of children with ADHD, executive dysfunction, learning disabilities, social cognitive weaknesses, and emotional/behavioral challenges with brain injuries.
Tonight we will discuss the short term and long term behavioral changes that can occur with concussions and other mild brain injuries. How to prevent them and how best to treat them.
We can’t ignore head injuries anymore. Athletes in North America sustain 3.8 million brain injuries each year and yet they are reluctant to report brain injuries. Players feel pressure to shake it off to remain in the game. There is a stigma attached to the word concussion.
The fact is; NO mouth guard, football helmet, helmet padding or soccer headband has yet been shown to reduce the risk of concussion. But there are alternatives that will draw attention to some of the head injuries that go unnoticed. Impact Intelligence System, which includes a specially designed mouth guard, is able to transmit “real time” head impact data through a wireless network on the sidelines. While it does not prevent or diagnose concussions, the Impact Intelligence System tracks and monitors information on blows to the head, as they are happening, for players wearing mouth guards embedded with this new technology.
We are joined by Dr. Monroe Elkin to share, with the BEYONDtheCheers team of listeners, the benefits and technology behind this revolutionary new mouth guard.
