Stockton, CA (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
A recent medical journal published by medlineplus.com determined that brain changes persist in children who suffer from concussions albeit subsidence of injury signs. Alongside this finding, author Sandra Merriweather’s debut book emphasizes accurate assessment and appropriate treatment of young athletes to promote and support safety.
Sandra’s marriage to Michael Merriweather, former linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Minnesota Vikings, Jets and Packers, took her to an opportunity of unimaginable destinations the world over. Her wayfaring further invigorated her desire to contribute something of particular significance to the field of athletics and society in general. As a registered nurse, mentor, advocate and educator, this book is a tribute to the pillars of sports and celebrity athletes who unselfishly contribute to the well-being of children through a lifelong commitment of inspiring kids to maintain health and fitness and exemplifying the proper techniques of the games to avoid injuries.
When improperly treated, common play tumbles and blunt blows to rough, backbreaking injuries can result to long-term damage, disabilities or even death. In this relevant and timely discourse, the author corresponds to persons involved in the rearing, training and rehabilitation of young athletes, such as parents, coaches, and school nurses. She tackles subjects related to concussions and head injuries to enhance areas warranting improvement which could save potentials, talents and, ultimately, lives.
“The general public is widely unaware of the consequences of head trauma to young athletes and even playground incidents at school,” Dr. Vincent Shrader of Western Governors University shares. “It is tragic that so many injuries go undetected and untreated because the injured are too young to realize something is seriously wrong.”
A Football Wife’s Research Study for the Love of the Games is an up-to-date discussion and analysis of the possible negative effects from physical activities the youth take on. Education remains the most potent key to success and prevention.
