CORE stands for Concussion Optimization Recovery Exercise.

 

What is a Concussion?

A concussion, also known as a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to either the head or the body that causes the brain to move rapidly inside the skull. A concussion changes how the brain normally functions.

Concussion Facts

  • According to CDC estimates, 1.6-3.8 m sports and recreation related concussions occur each year in the U.S.
  • 10% of all contact sport athletes sustain concussions yearly.
  • Brain injuries cause more deaths than any other sports injury. In football, brain injuries account for 65% to 95% of all fatalities. Football injuries associated with the brain occur at the rate of one in every 5.5 games. In any given season, 10% of all college players and 20% of all high school players sustain brain injuries.
  • 87% of professional boxers have sustained a brain injury.
  • 5% of soccer players sustain brain injuries as a result of their sport.
  • The head is involved in more baseball injuries than any other body part. Almost half of the injuries involve a child's head, face, mouth or eyes.
  • An athlete who sustains concussion is 4-6 times more likely to sustain a second concussion.
  • Effects of concussion are cumulative in athletes who return to play prior to complete recovery.
  • Up to 86% of athletes that suffer a concussion will experience Post-Traumatic Migraine or some other type of headache pain. In fact, recent evidence indicates that presence and severity of headache symptoms may be a very significant indicator of severity of head injury and help guide return to play decisions.
  • 1.5 million Americans suffer from traumatic brain injuries
  • A traumatic brain injury occurs every 15 seconds
  • It's the number one cause of death in children and young adults
  • Fewer than 1 in 20 will get the facts they need
  • It causes 1.5 times more deaths than AIDS

CORE IS A TARGETED NEUROFITNESS AND NEUROLONGEVITY PROGRAM FOR INITIAL CONCUSSION TREATMENT AND CONCUSSION MANAGEMENT that can be included in training and treatment facilities.

  • TREAT INITIALLY &  FOLLOW for 3 months after injury

  • TEACH CLIENT how the brain recovers

  • TRACK the progress THE CLIENTS make

  • Compare and correlate progress to clinical findings
