“I don't know for sure exactly what it was. When they go in there and evaluate players they give them a bunch of tests and his recommendation for him not to play or do anything for three months”
Denver Broncos linebacker Warrick Holdman has been advised by doctors not to play football for three months after suffering a spinal cord concussion in a collision with a teammate last week. via 9NEWS
Not one of these so called concussion specialists have ever done anything to prevent a concussion. They are speculating much like the neuropsychiatrist, they are really just throwing s--- off the wall.
Dr.Gerald Maher, featured in ESPN the magazine and a Tufts head and neck specialist who treats Patriot players has been summond to an NFL research project by Rodger Goodell. The problem is, they do not apprieciate the complexities Dr. Maher bases his procedure on.
An independent study seems to be the only way, unfortunate, because NFL team dentists could be easily trained in the procedure within days. Players like Morgan, Roethlisberger, Holdman, Cutler, Holmes should have a gripe with the union about not pressing for this corrective measure. By the way, the Patriots who wear it have the lowest concussion rate in the league, if anyone is counting, remember the team who has won three of the last six superbowls. They should all be fitted with the Maher mouth guard and concussion rates would drop to those of the Pats. www.mahercor.com
