Between the growing numbers of children and adolescents playing sports and the increased attention to head injuries by the larger sports community and the general public, pediatric concussions are emerging as a major concern. And as practitioners are seeing more young clients with head injuries, questions arise about age-appropriate assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and return to activity. Pediatric and Adolescent Concussion: Diagnosis, Management, and Outcomes offers evidence-based guidelines where few previously existed. This comprehensive volume clearly explains the effects of traumatic injury on the developing brain in sports- and non-sports-related contexts, and establishes a framework for immediate and long-term management, especially the crucial first 24 hours. Chapters provide a basic grounding in its subject with a history of concussion as a medical entity and a review of definitional and classification issues, take the reader through the steps of a neuropsychological evaluation, pinpoint post-injury issues, and offer strategies for the prevention of further or future injury. Pediatric and Adolescent Concussion: Diagnosis, Management, and Outcomes serves as both educational resource and practical framework for a wide array of professionals, including neuropsychologists, sports medicine physicians, child psychologists and psychiatrists, pediatric and family physicians, athletic trainers, social workers, and educators.

The increasing recognition of concussion and its associated consequences has focused international attention on mild traumatic brain injury. The need for early diagnosis, evaluation, and management has expanded dramatically. This volume includes the experience of leading experts who describe the recent advances in the pathophysiology, biomechanics, imaging definition, and management of concussion. Advanced imaging and electrophysiological techniques are being used to help delineate the underlying metabolic and ultrastructural effects of concussive injuries. Papers in this volume review the role of emerging techniques including fMRI, SPECT, PET, DTI, MRS, and MEG, as well as report on multimodality concussion management programs which offer guidelines for selecting relevant team members, assessing community needs, and implementing management strategies that align with current practice standards. This publication provides neurosurgeons, neurologists, trauma and sports medicine specialists, physiatrists, neuropsychologists, and neuroscientists with a comprehensive overview of the current understanding of the causes of mild traumatic brain injury or concussion, newer methods to evaluate it, and current and evolving multimodality management strategies.

According to the CDC, 1.7 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. Mild TBIs (concussions) account for 75% of those brain injuries. As awareness about concussion and TBI rises, and debate rages about the long-term impact of brain injury, policies are changing to prevent the occurrence of concussion wherever possible. But what if you can't prevent concussion? Immediately after you're injured, what do you do? Where do you turn for help? How do you make sense of what's happening? What can you expect? The actions you take and the choices you make, immediately after a brain injury, can significantly impact your recovery. Concussion survivors need help - right away, to prevent further harm. But they don't always get it. This guide provides information on the Top 10 things I wish I had known, when I went through my own concussions. With the right information and proper care, it is possible to make good choices, recover from concussion and get on with your life.

Up to 10% of people will suffer a mild head injury (or 'mild traumatic brain injury') in their lifetime and up to 50% of those people will also find they have lingering post-concussion symptoms in the months or years afterwards. These symptoms can include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, irritability, sleep disturbance, reduced day-to-day memory, poor concentration, taking longer to think, 'muzzy' headedness, depression, anxiety, tinnitus, blurred or double vision, sensitivity to light or noise, frustration, nausea, restlessness and sensitivity to alcohol. In such circumstances the 'mild' head injury may feel anything but mild. This is particularly so if large areas of your day to day life are affected. People in these circumstances can have their difficulties compounded by the very different explanations for their persisting difficulties. These usually involve receiving contradictory opinions about the extent to which ongoing symptoms are caused by neurological brain injury or other factors. These complicating factors can make it very difficult to find the right kind of service or expertise after a TBI. Patients can easily feel like they are being ''pushed from pillar to post" when trying to find services that can help with their problems. On top of all of this, there is a distinct lack of good, science- based information for patients about the best ways to manage PCS. It is therefore very common for those who experience prolonged difficulties to find their situation extremely confusing, frustrating and stressful. Dr Nigel King is an expert with much experience in this area, and has written a very valuable book weaving together the most useful knowledge in this area. It clarifies some of the complex issues for those who suffer with prolonged problems and provides practical, science-based self-help guidance for managing TBI difficulties. Using cognitive rehabilitation techniques and CBT approaches for the associated mental health complications of PCS, this much need book provides help, hope and understanding for what can be a highly disabling and misunderstood condition.

This is a unique book in that it not only talks about the growing concern today regarding concussions in sports, but it also offers a proven solution to mitigate or even eliminate the symptoms, when concussions don’t “just go away.” It’s called the Irlen Method. Originally developed to help struggling readers, the Irlen Method has been extremely successful in helping those with concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) lead a normal life without the pain of headaches and migraines, the strains of light sensitivity, the frustrations associated with poor academic performance, or the inability to relieve anxiety or even get a comfortable night’s sleep. This book also serves as a guide to parents and coaches, offering ways in which to detect concussion symptoms and how to discuss the issues with youngsters who don’t want to say anything because they want to get right back out on the field or on the court, despite the pain. Stories, and some sobering statistics, bring the seriousness of concussions to light. We emphasize the need for strong communication between parents, coaches and young athletes to prevent possible concussions and to understand when they do occur so that the injured player receives proper attention and testing. The book then explains how the Irlen Method can help eliminate the symptoms and concludes with a number of enlightening and very encouraging stories from athletes and from our military heroes who have also sustained concussions or TBI and have recovered from debilitating symptoms. Concussions cannot be eliminated in sports, or elsewhere. We can certainly make stronger efforts to avoid them through proper training and equipment to protect ourselves, but accidents will happen. The benefit of this book is learning about concussions and knowing that there is something available that can prevent the long lasting effects.

This is the story of one man's fight against a multibillion dollar colossus. A man who stood up for what was right, whatever the cost. The brilliant young forensic pathologist had no idea that the body on the slab in front of him would change his life, and ultimately change the world. The body belonged to legendary American Footballer Mike Webster, whose mental health had rapidly declined after he had stopped playing - he had ended up Tasering himself to relieve his chronic back pain and fixing his rotting teeth with Superglue. Dr Bennet Omalu found that the psychosis suffered by "Iron Mike" was no accident. His autopsy unearthed evidence of a trauma-related disease - the direct result of years of blows to the head in games. He knew it would keep killing scores of other sportsmen unless something was done. He believed that the NFL (National Football League), one of the most powerful corporations in America, would welcome the discovery. But it was the one truth they wanted to ignore. Omalu himself became a target. 'This is classic David and Goliath stuff, and as exciting as a great courtroom drama. A riveting, powerful human tale . . . a masterclass on how to tell a story' Charles Duhigg, New York Times columnist and bestselling author of The Power of Habit

Concussion by Jeanne Marie Laskas | Summary & Analysis Preview: Concussion by Jeanne Marie Laskas chronicles the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian-born forensic pathologist known for his seminal research on chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease largely found in people who have sustained repetitive brain trauma. In 2002, while working as a pathologist at the Allegheny County coroner’s office in Pittsburgh, Omalu autopsied the brain of Pro Football Hall of Fame center “Iron Mike” Webster of the Pittsburgh Steelers. This led to his groundbreaking discovery of CTE in the brains of relatively young and otherwise healthy football players. When he published his first report on CTE in 2005 in Neurosurgery, Omalu assumed that the National Football League (NFL) would rejoice and take steps to ensure player safety. Instead, this report would lead to a decade-long battle with the NFL, which refused to acknowledge the connection between football’s dangers and the resultant health of its players… PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.
