The Silent Killer Traumatic Brain (TBI) and Spinal Cord Injury. A football player takes over 20,000 hits to the head every season. Causing micro trauma to the brain. Trauma like this can add up to cause a severe effect on health for years to come with recent studies showing concussions being linked to diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Helmets and facemasks protect the outer surface of the head and face and offer little protection for brain. With players being as large as they are and running speeds up to 30mph, the force behind that man can feel like the impact of a small car. Every time a player gets hit the brain collides with the interior of the skull causing damage to the brain and spinal cord. This damage can be immediately noticeable or take hours to show. Imagine jello in a bowl, if you shake it a couple of times cracks will show but if you keep shaking it will loose its form. The brain and nervous system does not heal like the rest of the body. Nervous tissue takes years to heal, if at all. Oxygen being the number one factor to improve healing in the nervous system.
