Press Release (ePRNews.com) - VIRDEN, Ill. - Sep 11, 2017 - Dr. Todd W. Austin, a Doctor of Chiropractic from Austin Family Chiropractic in Virden, IL, has just created a series of “Concussion Awareness” videos in time for National Concussion Awareness Day, which will be this coming Friday, September 15, 2017.
Although Austin counts his blessings that he’s never personally suffered any concussions, he’s helped to manage and treat dozens of patient’s who were either suffering from acute concussion symptoms or the more chronic after effects of a concussive episode (ie, “Post Concussion Syndrome”).
“Since Dr. Bennet Omalu’s research on CTE or Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (portrayed by actor Will Smith in “Concussion” the movie) and recent lawsuits against the NFL or National Football League over the past decade, most people now associate football with concussions.” says Dr. Austin. “But concussions also occur in soccer, hockey, baseball, basketball, the workplace, auto accidents and from other accidents and falls. They’re definitely not specific to the sport of football.”
Austin just released the first 5 videos on both his YouTube Channel and his Austin Family Chiropractic clinic’s facebook page over the past week. Topics released on video so far include: “Introduction to Concussions”, “A Summary of Dr. Omalu’s Work on CTE”, “The Mechanism of Concussion”, “Second Impact Syndrome” and “Baseline Concussion Testing along with the Appropriate Age to Begin Playing (Tackle) Football”.
Dr. Todd plans to film at least 4 more episodes to add to his “Concussion Awareness” series in the coming months. Here is the link to the full “Concussion Awareness” playlist. Please check back often to view new videos once they too get uploaded.
Here is video #1 which covers the “Introduction to Concussions” as well as “Dr. Austin’s Qualifications to Discuss Concussions”. https://youtu.be/P4jq91BVa_M
