Congratulations to the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks on their big wins to play in Super Bowl 48. The 2013 season in the NFL has brought about further understanding about the prevention and diagnosis of concussion injuries as well as how players are
tested and managed before returning to play. There has also been a further
understanding of the correlation between concussion and encephalopathy in
retired NFL players. A preliminary research study is also now demonstrating a
link between Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) pooling (and restrictions in the flow of
CSF resulting from vertebral misalignment) to many of the debilitating effects
of concussions. Here is a link to a story of how former Chicago Bears tough
quarterback Jim McMahon has benefited from the chiropractic treatments of Dr.
Scott Rosa. Not only is this exciting news for NFL players that have suffered concussion injuries, but also for anyone that has sustained concussion injuries or neck injuries.
