CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopath) is the hallmark brain disease that is now clearly been associated with sports-related concussions and battlefield blast waves and traumatic brain injuries. A single blast exposure can cause damage similar years of concussions on the football field. The group, “Faces of CTE” launched the first CTE Awareness Day, Jan. 30, 2017 to raise awareness of the devastating effects of repeated sports concussions on players of all ages. The Brain Bank at Mayo Clinic has joined them in this effort. Sad as it sounds, researchers need the donations of the brains of players in order to move their research forward. Part of the message to everyone concerned with head injury MUST be that there is an effective treatment that heals the brain, and simply waiting for symptoms to go away is to ignore the damage that continues long after the injury is sustained. That treatment is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
