The Institute of Medicine’s 2013 Concussion Investigation preliminary findings, have confirmed our worst fears. The debate around repetitive brain damage, from contact sports that produce career ending disabilities to longer term brain disease. These brain injuries are dangerous, cause permanent damage, and lead to near-term cognitive deficits, neurological dysfunction and earlier dementia and depression. There has been an absence of evidence-based risk reduction, prevention, and new concepts to help MTBI victims and their families, until now. Brain In Play’s Brain Performance Enhancement™ (BPE) claims to improve athletic/military performance by optimizing macro-level brain functions. It’s worth taking a second look. And regardless of what additional findings researchers discover, pro and college contact sports’ universal challenge is best answered by ongoing optimizing conditions for brain cell functioning, preservation and growth both before and after a concussive event: Learn how brain performance enhancement can aid in the recovery post-concussion, as a responsible preventative measure and towards treatment for those suffering a brain injury.

There are many terms used to describe injuries to the head. Concussion, mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), mild closed head injury and mild somatic brain injury have been used frequently in the athletic world. This adds to the confusion of the general public when seeking information about concussive incidents. More education is needed. Even in the medical field more education is required. About 160 out of 233 newly graduated chief residents are uncomfortable treating an athlete with a concussion. Who else is affected? Concussions can affect more than the individual who sustained the injury. The negative impact on the family may include risk of suicide, divorce, chronic unemployment, financial duress due to lost earnings and substance abuse. This has a cascade effect on the rest of the family. Spouses and kids report depression and social isolation from broken family relationships.

Numerous recent cases involving professional athletes bring the issue of mild traumatic brain injuries into the press. I will discuss the definition of a mild tramatic brain injury; diagnostic techology surrounding a MTBI; and MTBI in the context of insurance claims.
Medical research has exposed a brain trauma crisis in contact sports. In sports like football, soccer, and ice hockey, studies show that every season around 50% of athletes experience concussive symptoms after a hit to the head. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of these are reported and diagnosed. On the second half of the program, you hear it first from the parent of a ten year old boy that suffered two concussions in the space of under two months. Find out their battle and the tr
Some feel that the word “concussion” has become a common household term. With repetitive incidents occurring to high profile athletes there has been an effort to create a better level of awareness regarding this injury. However, there still remains a lack of education towards recognition and treatment of this common occurrence. A second blow to the head, even if it is a minor one, can result in a loss of control of the brain’s blood supply. It is important to prohibit athlete
A recent University of North Carolina study showed that the average college football player receives over 300 blows to the head in four seasons. In the pros it is even higher. Autopsy studies show that NFL players with early dememtia do have significant anatomical changes to their brains. Dave Duerson the former Chicago Bears safety shot himself in the chest, and not in the head, to save his brain for analysis. Before he killed himself he left a note to his family to donate his brain to
