Call To Action: 

In New York State for 2009: Approximately 50,500 children under the age of 19 visited the emergency room for traumatic brain injury and of those, approximately 3,000 were hospitalized. Researchers estimate that each year approximately 3.2 million concussions occur in the United States, with 136,000 in high school–aged individuals alone. (CDC resources)

What is the risk in our Schools?

Lack of resources and qualified practitioners in our schools increase chances for less desirable recovery results.

Concussions:

  • can have catastrophic results in younger athletes, if not treated properly, due to their brain’s early stage of development.
  • lack a sense of urgency as compared to other injuries in schools and therefore have less allocated resources and funding.
  • are not identified accurately and quickly on the field due to lack of education.

  1. My son received a concussion in a non-sports related injury last year. We are looking for someone that can treat him. Many of the doctors we have contacted and consulted on deal with sports-related injuries. He was seen in the ER and we followed up with a neurologist. We were told time will heal… almost a year later my 17 year old is suffering from debilitating headaches and increased memory loss. My son was playing airsoft with friends and he was hit by a dirt bike going about 30 miles per hour. He didn’t remember hitting his head only that he hurt his wrist, It’s frustrating we cannot get the proper care for him.

  2. By the way, is anyone else ectixed about the level of experience many young players will have gained during this injury plagued season? When you look at the D-line next year, a starting 3 of Jenkins, Jolly and Raji with backups in Mike Neal, Howard and Wilson looks pretty good. Picket may be there instead of Jolly which would also be good. LB core still needs a better pass rusher to complement the Claymaker but our depth and quality across the board looks pretty good. Even in the secondary, one has to be optimistic with the elevation of Tramon, the saavy of Woodson and the emerging success of Shields. Add to that with Burnett coming back from injury and depth with Anthony Smith and the back end looks pretty solid. Offensively, we will see the return of Finley and hopefully the addition of a 1st round O-line talent from the draft. I do believe Starks will be a good back, and BJack is an excellent 3rd down back. It all adds up to :Superbowl Homeboy! Go Pack!
