“A Brain Surgeon’s Advice for Saving the Brains of our Kids and Grandkids, and for Saving the Games We Love”
CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) is a specific type of brain degeneration recognized in athletes and others who have sustained multiple concussions. There is no known treatment. CTE causes a major decline in neurological function, including mental disorders such as depression and impulsiveness and a severe form of dementia, usually many years after the last concussion.
Dr. Tator tells us, “CTE is only one of the serious consequences of concussions. We should also be concerned about preventing what happened to Rowan Stringer, the 17 year old rugby player who lost her life because of concussions. And, there are a lot of people suffering from the post-concussion syndrome, not all of whom will get better.
We need a culture shift to deal with concussion in sports, which will require that all of us sign up for the concussion prevention team.”
