TOGETHER WE CAN HEAL
The mysteries of concussions are as great as the debts of the brain itself; however, much scientific research and studies have been done to shed some light on these previously uncharted waters.
Even with its recent popularity, a 2015 Harris poll reports that nearly 90% of Americans cannot correctly define a concussion and are not familiar with the post-concussion syndrome that can follow.
Records show that up to 3.8 million sports related concussions happen within a year, and according to the CDC, an estimated number of over 170,000 children under the age of 19 are treated annually in emergency departments for traumatic brain injuries including concussions.
With such astronomically high statistics, we can no longer afford to be un-educated and un-prepared in the face of concussions.
TBI’s including concussions are the number one cause of unintentional death and disability among children. They rob professional athletes of their livelihood, and their footprints torment our heroes and veterans of war.
Providing answers and support to individuals and their families impacted by concussions and TBI’s.
As a partner and in connection with Keys2Eating, we are currently doing three things, in the effort to make a profound impact on how TBI’s and concussions are dealt with today. First, we are striving to reduce the number of TBI’s and concussion through education and prevention. We have also created a complete concussion protocol plan, which includes a step by step recovery phase, a reintegration system, and a brain health supported meal plan based on cutting edge medical research. We are especially excited for the development of our third step, which is, the assisted healing through the power of community and connection.
Our concussion community brings together those battling and journeying through the impacts of concussions and TBI’s. From our children and athletes, to our heroes of war and their families. It is within the safe walls of Keys2Concussions, where recovering individuals and their loved ones can unite, bringing strength to each other in the walk to complete brain health and total recovery.
