CONCUSSIONS ARE SERIOUS BUSINESS
  • Nearly 3.8 million concussions occur annually in the U.S. during sport-related activities1
  • Up to 50% of sport-related concussions go unreported1
  • Persistence and severity of symptoms after a concussion are predictors of a prolonged recovery1
  • con·cus·sion

    NOUN
    A type of traumatic brain injury—or TBI—caused by a bump, blow or
    hit that makes the head and brain move rapidly back and forth. The
    sudden movement can cause the brain to bounce around or twist in
    the skull. This can create chemical changes in the brain and
    sometimes stretch and damage brain cells.
    HOW IS A CONCUSSION TREATED?
    After a concussion, doctors typically recommend relative rest. This means
    limiting activities that require concentration and physical activity like:
    SCREEN TIME
    EXERCISE
    SPORTS
    Athletes ready to get back on the field may struggle with the patience and time needed to heal fully.
    A TOTAL-BODY SOLUTION IS ESSENTIAL FOR HEALING
    Brain injury can leave lasting physical and mental impacts. Problems can be cognitive or physical such as:2
    WEAKNESS
    LACK OF COORDINATION
    IMPAIRED VISION

    Emotional and mental issues are also a common result of brain injuries, and these challenges can be the hardest to face. Stressors can delay healing and cause re-injury if the person returns to work before they are mentally and physically ready.
