Concussions and Return to Sport

Posted in Injuries on October 29, 2008 by mboyle1959

My staff and I listened to a great, but disturbing presentation yesterday on concussions in our staff meeting. The presenter was Chris Nowinski, a former client. Chris played football at Harvard and then briefly became a professional wrestler. During a match Chris sustained a concussion but, continued to attempt to train and to wrestle. The result was a four year odyssey into the world of traumatic brain injury. Chris has since written a book, Head Games- Footballs Concussion Crisis from the NFL to Youth Leagues

as well as founding the Sports Legacy Institute www.sportslegacy.org . If you deal with athletes in any sport i urge you to check this out. I can guarantee it will change the way you think about concussions and potentally help some kids.
