Winning the War Against Concussions in Youth Sports teaches an easy to follow scientific brain wellness safety recipe that players, parents, and coaches can follow that improves the functioning, preservation, communication and growth of brain cells – and helps prevent and heal youth athlete concussions. The book is now available for purchase on Amazon: http://amzn.com/150054759X
“Winning” is coauthored by international youth-sports physician safety icon Dr. Alan Ashare who originated the youth concussion/spinal cord injury prevention program Head’s Up – Don’t Duck. It introduces a research-based fast-track program called ‘BE CHAMPS-24/7’, that not only neutralizes youth sports concussions, but also improves athletic performance – middle school through college.
Clinician-scientist author Bill White, previously a youth sports coach, behavioral/brain health hospital COO, and parent of 5 high school athletes (one suffering a years-long post concussive syndrome) states: “Perhaps best of all our solution will help to save and preserve youth sports, increasingly at risk from outdated and inconsistent approaches to concussions that focus on making sports safer for players, to the near exclusion of where the action should be at: making players and their brains safer for sports.”
Top U.S. youth sports concussion neurologist/author Dr. Harry Kerasides, founder of XLNT-Brain shares:
"The new book Winning the War Against Concussions in Youth Sports includes compelling information about the epidemic-size concussion problem…presenting the realities of concussion incidence and the impact on lives of individuals and families. But it also shares an exciting brain-saving epigenetic wellness approach that…is a catalyst for youth helping athletes get more from their careers, both on and off the field/ice/court/pitch…Every parent, or coach that cares about players, should read this book."
This 200-page book has chapters for players, parents and coaches, presents the latest scientific research on concussions/sub-concussive blows, offers a review on CTE (since teens have been found with early stage CTE), and provides parents/coaches with a game-changing safety contract to reduce concussion concerns and liability. Besides youth sports concussions, Brain In Play’s unique scientific brain wellness remedy is now being used to successfully treat psychiatric illnesses, Parkinson’s/Alzheimer’s and substance addiction – all being researched as likely consequences of repetitive (sports) head injuries.
