Concussion

By Thursday, September 9, 2010 36 No tags Permalink 0

There has recently been a lot of talk about concussions in the media (notably, the sports media). It’s good to see that this injury is being recognized as an important new category; not a sprain, strain, or broken bone. Unfortunately, in the sports world at least, it is not widely perceived as any different from a break, strain or strain. In a concussion, a bone, muscle, tendon or ligament is not torn or broken, instead the brain hits the inside of the skull resulting in a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). Although people often refer to brain injuries as head injuries, the term head injury can be misleading. In fact, I have often referred to what happened to me in 2003 as “an injury” since I have found it to be a much simpler and less labourious conversation.

Their is no shortage of information about concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and I will try to provide as many important links and as much information as I can.

    CHUBB the NHL’s workers comp provider, fitted the entire Hershey Bear team with a corrective orthotic retainer like mouth guard, designed to counteract the boxers “Glass Jaw”. In O8 the Bears had 147 games missed, due to concussion, with some players sittting out for months. In 09 after fitting, 0 games missed due to concussion. This is data CHUBB has reviewed.
    Both the Pentagon and the new NFL concussion committee head have recognized this protocol. Different from common boil and bite products like the UA mouth guard, this corrective protocol was recently published in a medical journal. See the links for more info. http://www.mahercor.com
