You might be aware by now about the fact that I love football and that I do enjoy watching and knowing more about the game! 

Football is fun to watch. For players, it is a contact sport and can be a dangerous one at that. Injuries sustained by athletes playing the game are too serious not to go unnoticed particularly head injuries. 

Join me in this episode as I go into detail about the traumatic brain injuries, concussions, its diagnosis, as well as my thoughts on the film Concussion, which is based on the incredible true story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE.

Episode Highlights:

  • What is concussion?
  • How serious is concussion especially among football players
  • The discovery of CTE
  • Symptoms of CTE
  • NFL’s stance on concussion
  • Thoughts and impressions of the movie, Concussion (2015)
  • Return to Play Rules and Laws
  • Continued research on concussions, and CTE
