Contact sports and concussions is the topic of this week’s broadcast as Dr. David C. Kolbaba delves into the latest statistics of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).  Traumatic brain damage has played a role in depression, dementia and suicides of youth and professional athletes.  If you have a child involved in youth contact sports, you won’t want to miss this show.

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.  Additionally, many diagnosed concussions are not treated properly.  Visit www.sportslegacy.org for information about Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy.  Download a copy of 7 Steps for Brain Safety for Youth Sports.
