There Be Monsters

“In like a lion, out like a lamb,” that’s what they say about March.

To the extent that expression applies to the weather this month and to this blog, I think 2014 may be the exception that proves the rule!   908 more words

Concussion In Sport

sportingjim reblogged this on Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine Blog and commented:

As I prepare for the 2015 OSU Sports Medicine Concussion Symposium (I am in front of my computer working on my Powerpoint Presentation), I am reminded of the post I penned exactly a year ago and am re-blogging today. Attending the 2014 symposium I shared my thoughts (see below) about the future of contact sports in our new world of concussion concern. The intervening year has seen a veritable slew of new research and new thought on the attendant problems.  In our March 2015 CJSM, for instance, we have an editorial by Iain Murray on the need for a 'culture change' in sports concussion and several pieces of original research, including a study on the detection of concussion using cranial accelerometry. I am looking forward to what co-panelists in the symposium have to say, including Stan Herring, who wears among many other hats that of co-author of the Zurich 4th International Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport.  I am thankful to my friend Jim Borchers, the course co-director and Team physician for the Ohio State Buckeyes, for the chance to talk as well.   I'll be sure to post the high points of the symposium, both here on the blog and on Twitter @CJSMonline
