A recent NYT article about the prominent problem facing contact sports such as the NFL. I have outlined previous stories ( here, and here).

Dave Duerson, a formal NFL player, tragically committed suicide. In the event, he intentionality spared his brain, and left behind a note: "Please, see that my brain is given to the N.F.L.’s brain bank." Read the full story here.

Serious concussions, especially multiple concussions can cause serious compromise of brain function. If you've been in a crash, call us to see how we can help.
